Special Daytime Relaxed Performance for parents with babies under 1. This show will have lifted lights and softer sound. Change a nappy, feed the baby, come and go. Do whatever your baby needs. Cooing, gurgling and crying babies welcome.

A vocal journey into the messiness of one woman’s motherhood. Two women, two voices, in just a meter square playing space. Baba’s Song is a wild roar in the woods and a panic attack in Mothercare.

In Our Hands is an emerging South West based theatre company made up of actor/physical theatre performer Kim Heron (Green Ginger, Theatre Ad Infinitum) and musician/actor Jannah Warlow (Verity Standen, Bristol Old Vic). Baba’s Song sees Kim and Jannah collaborate with Bristol director Emma Williams to create a new piece of performance storytelling.

“Blisteringly powerful.”
Angie Belcher, Comedian

“It truly summed up motherhood… wonderful to see such a subject being tackled on stage.”
Alexandra Bridger, The Medicated Follower
