Rake what your mama gave you, in this outrageous, queer ecological subversion of family

Dearest compost, I am your mother and I am your child.

We live in an ecologically precarious time. Some of us don’t want to bring children into this world, others are worried their children won’t have a world to grow old into … but we’ve still got a whole lot of love to give. Rethink what it means to give birth and be birthed, and sing-along with us in this gooey, camp and interactive subversion of family portraits, birthing classes, baby showers and evolutionary biology.

From the minds of queer trouble-makers Noemie Huttner-Koros and director Andrew Sutherland, and fresh from seasons at M1 Singapore Fringe Festival & The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights, Mother of Compost asks you to roll up your sleeves…change only comes from getting your hands dirty.
