04 Nov Look Mum, No Hands! a Mimbre and Daryl Beeton Productions co-production
About Look Mum No Hands:
Look Mum, No Hands! is a tender story all about friendship and growing up. It explores 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 if you’re Disabled, or not.
Risk is a sliding scale. What seems risky to you might feel comfortable to someone else. Yet, in order to grow we take small risks that push us a little further along that scale until, one day, the things we once thought were risky now feel like the norm. 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.
Look Mum, No Hands! 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.
