About This Show

A ground-breaking binaural opera from Mercury-nominated artist ESKA, Woman & Machine charts her three-month experience in the neonatal unit of King’s College Hospital when her daughter was born at just 26 weeks. Incorporating the sonic worlds of neonatal units and the womb, this new work explores the entwining stories of those who occupy the units, and delves into ESKA’s life and Zimbabwean heritage, connecting themes of life, survival, medicalisation, womanhood and motherhood.
