Motherland animation - Vincent Dance Theatre
MOTHERLAND is a funny, moving show about having it all. Blending dance, text and live music, VDT's brilliant, international cast of 11 men, women and children ask 'what do we hope for now?' Inching its way through airbrushed beauty, boob jobs and Botox, victim-blaming, slut-shaming, the might of motherhood and the challenge of childlessness, Motherland is a funny and moving show about having it all. Spurred on by Simone de Beauvoir, Caitlin Moran and the Spice Girls, Vincent goes into battle with the big boys, arguing against a narrow, over-sexualized definition of femininity to ask what it is that we really, really want. http://www.motherland.org.uk/
Motherland is commissioned by Brighton Dome and Festival, South East Dance, Corn Exchange Newbury, The Point Eastleigh and Peak Performances @ Montclair State University, USA.
