Next Wave Festival: Baby Cake
May 9, 2018 - May 13, 2018$23 – $28
Two performers, one baby. One life, one choice. Your hosts, Kerensa and Yuhui, are both women of childbearing age. One is a mother. The other is not. Both are acutely aware this single decision has the power to alter the course of one’s entire life.
This compelling live performance slips between the autobiographical and the absurd, the banal and the surreal, the conversational and the theatrical. Amidst chaos and control, restraint and rebellion, a baby watches the performance unfold from his throne. Drawing on their interest in domestic ritual, Diball and Ng-Rodriguez invite you in and offer morsels to share. Partake in their candid response to the pressures of being a good woman, a bad mother, becoming our mothers and what it means to have children. Or not.
As a part of Next Wave Festival, Baby Cake runs from 9-13 May, Wednesday to Saturday at 6.30pm, and a relaxed performance on Sunday at 12pm. Tickets available online from Next Wave here.
