FLOODS is a discussion of two women's attitudes towards the ethics of reproduction in an overpopulated world.
An irreverent and stylistically inventive piece about fear and the future. Funny and imaginative, an exploration into what is left for the next generations.
Pregnant with knowledge and positively rotund, we must be resourceful when resources are... diminished.
Using clowning and storytelling we will ask if it is possible to refocus maternal instincts in order to sustain our planet, and if humanity has or ever will evolve past an animal need to procreate. FLOODS also examines traditional terms around motherhood, asking what phrases like ‘biological clock’ and ‘maternal instinct’ mean to women in 2017.
The project has been commissioned by Arts Council England and Cambridge Junction and was first previewed at WatchOut in June 2017. We are also working in collaboration with Camden Peoples Theatre and Theatre Delicatessen with have planned performance dates at CPT from 9-11th of November and at Theatre Deli i in Sheffield and London in February 2018.
