Winding its way through boob jobs and Botox, victim blaming, slut shaming, the might of motherhood and the challenge of childlessness, Motherland is a funny, moving show about having it all. Vincent Dance Theatre’s brilliant, multi-talented ensemble of men, women and children look at the gender they were born into and the price they are paying for it. Uncompromising yet utterly accessible, Motherland appeals to both sexes through its potent blend of live music, theatre and dance.
Motherland is a call to arms: one that sticks two fingers up at the shallow hypocrisies of our time and asks ‘where are we now?’
