Look At Me Now, Mummy

11 Feb 2015

‘(Charlotte Vincent is)...one of the most important feminist artists working in Britain today.**** Luke Jennings The Observer, March 2015

Director/Choreographer and Brighton Festival Associate, Charlotte Vincent’s Look At Me Now, Mummy, is a comi-tragic one-woman show created with long-term Polish collaborator Aurora Lubos, eight months after giving birth to her first child.

Set in a disheveled and chaotic kitchen, Look At Me Now, Mummy is an intimate, funny and moving portrait of a mother’s desire to look the part, whilst not really knowing what part it is that she is supposed to be playing. It’s about trial and error and theatrical failure, with a baby always crying somewhere in the distance.

‘Lubos captures the exhausted, surreal derangement that comes from being a new mother… It’s superb performances such as these, as well as Vincent’s own choreography, that have ensured the company’s survival’ Judith Mackrell, The Guardian

“Loved it! Look At Me Now, Mummy made be hold my breath!” Audience Member March 2105

Originally co-commissioned by Danceworks UK, The Point Eastleigh, Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham and The Tron Theatre, Glasgow and funded by Arts Council England.

Part of 21 Years/21 Works, a live and on line collection of choreographer/director Charlotte Vincent’s film & production work from 1994-2015 – for more details click here.
