I just want to tell you this one thing about my mum
Then I’ll tell you
How Echidna, the Greek Goddess who mothered all monsters inhabits my bones
I’ll take a deep breath and realise
What if it all ends here
Through physical theatre and a little bit of acting, Unsuckle will take a good hard look at the concept of the mother. Our own mums, the mums who came before us, and whether, in an age of uncertainty, there will ever be a ‘right time’ for us to be mothers ourselves.
I think about my mum, and her mum, and then think about me being a mum, and then think about when and if to be a mum, and then mother earth,
and I’m like — fuck.
