Price £14

Fusing dance, storytelling and audiovisual projections, Mother The Verb is a performance with an air of ritual enacted from queer, trans and indigenous/of colour perspectives.

Exploring motherhood and its redemptive potential through a tender, physical language, this piece is a bold and complex study of the toxic effects produced by colonialism and ecological violence on human and planetary relations.
