NEW outdoors epic for 2021, MEarth MOthers is a trio of climate clowns in extraordinary costumes. They erupt from the stomach of Mother Earth to storm the streets leaving a trail of plastic waste and tarred teddies.
The world as we know it is going down and the MOthers are having a noxious knees-up!
They laugh at us swinging between activism and hard-to-break habits, alone on our small, polluted island.
Why do we consume so much?
Why are we wrecking the world?
What are we going to do about it?
MEarth MOthers have a physical, fungal response through comedy, music, mushrooms, puppetry, dance and shamanic ritual.
MEarth MOthers has been supported by Without Walls and is commissioned by SIRF Stockton International River Festival. R & D was supported by the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury and redevelopment in 2021 by the Arts Council of England.
We finished making this show in May 2021, having been stopped in our tracks by the pandemic in 2020.
You can see a sketchy idea of it in this little video.
