We’re delighted to have Rogue Play Theatre and Mother Tree coming to Circomedia in March. Mother Tree is a truthful and hilarious aerial show about Motherhood and the Forest. This is a highly physical piece combining theatre, aerial silk and spoken word about the eco-system created behind closed doors and what the forest cant each us about ourselves. It’s about the maternal mental health patterns that motherhood comes with alongside its hilarious and fantastical moments.

A note about the matinee performance on Friday 10th March, 2pm

The matinee show is particularly for new parents or carers with babes in arms, and we encourage and welcome parents or carers and babies together. Being a mum of two herself, the performer understands that babies make noise, parents might need to stand up and move about and breastfeeding is an act that needs to happen anywhere anytime. We want those with babies to feel empowered to come and see the show and provide the matinee specifically for that reason.

RoguePlay is led by Kim Wildborne, Artistic Director spending 12 years developing RoguePlay from asmall two hander into a thriving touring organisation. Kim is an award winning Circus and PhysicalTheatre Artist, consistently investigating aerial and acting technique in vertical space. Her work wasrecognised by the Women’s International Film Festival where she won Best Director for dance theatrefilm 3am Waitress. Graduating from De Montfort, 2005, Kim has worked with Commonwealth GamesOpening Ceremony, Autin Dance, Birmingham Hippodrome, Panasonic and NoFit State.

It has been inspiring to see Mother Tree, such an inspiring piece of art, very powerful. (Laura Vanhulle – Dance Theatre)
