Still Hungry21 Jan — 23 Jan
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.
In this 2019 Edinburgh ‘Fringe First’ winner from Germany, Berlin circus collective Still Hungry reveal the uncomfortable dark sides of their own motherhood in this mix of aerial circus and physical theatre.
Laced with humorous insight and told through personal experience and world-class aerial skills, Raven shines a spotlight on dilemmas faced by every working mother. Pitch-perfect in combining language and movement, the result is thoughtful and thrilling circus-theatre.
