This is a free outdoor event
Look Mum, No Hands! is a tender story about friendship and growing up. It is a visually beautiful, and physically surprising, coming-of-age story about two friends testing their own boundaries. Together they explore freedom, taking risks and independence and how they change depending on who you are.
Look Mum, No Hands! playfully explores this idea of independence vs interdependence, vulnerability and strength, using striking physical imagery that will linger in people’s minds.
The performance takes creative advantage of the fact that one of the characters uses a wheelchair to create new acrobatic shapes and choreographies that are original and unexpected. Using a combination of theatre, movement and acrobatics as a powerful narrative tool, the two friends play, pushing the boundaries of what is possible, until together they find the perfect balance of each of their limits.
