WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Look At Me Now, Mummy is a comi-tragic one-woman show that paints an intimate, funny and moving portrait of a woman tangled in her own imagination and caught between the conflicting roles of performer and mother. Concerned with the choices a woman must make between making work or making babies, the production touches on themes of childlessness, motherhood and the use of a woman's imagination to lift her out of depression and domestic mundanity. Look At Me Now, Mummy can be translated as a lonely performer questioning her need for the show to go on, a childless woman inventing a game to pass the time, a woman who has lost a baby, a woman yearning for the possibility of having a child or a woman on the verge of giving up. The piece is performed by Charlotte Vincent's long-term Polish collaborator Aurora Lubos, who performed in the original production in 2008. Part of 21 Years/ 21 Works, a live and online collection of film and production work by artistic director and choreographer Charlotte Vincent, the project celebrates the 21 year anniversary of Vincent Dance Theatre.
