“In German, we have this saying: ‘raven mother’. Neglectful, selfish. I’m afraid people say this behind my back.”

Am I strict enough? Am I away too much? Did I breastfeed for long enough? Should I be back in shape by now? Did I need that second glass of wine? Why is the house never tidy?
Did I want this?
Am I still myself?
Do they call me raven mother?

This fresh, forceful, feminist new work breaks down the crippling self-doubt and social expectations of modern mothers – whether to return to work or stay at home, whether to sacrifice or preserve themselves.

Berlin circus collective Still Hungry reveal the uncomfortable dark sides of their own motherhood in this mix of aerial circus and physical theatre.

Award-winning performance artist Bryony Kimmings lends her signature razor-sharp wit, emotive punch and provocative aesthetic to make her directorial debut for circus.

A UK premiere.
