Family Theatre: Look Mum, No Hands!

Daryl Beeton Productions and Mimbre present: Look Mum, No Hands!

a curvy brown skinned filipino female wheelchair dancer, with an above right knee amputation sat in a manual wheelchair, she leans to the left, her left hands holds the ankle of another woman whose leg rest on her shoulders. She wears a plum coloured dress. Her right arm is clasped around the waist of a white woman with ginger hair who hangs upside down with her legs in a split. The woman with ginger hair holds her left ankle and has her left hand on the first woman’s left knee, she wears an ochre jumpsuit. They look out at viewer smiling. Behind them is a grey asphalt path going off into the distance, they’re framed by trees and shrubbery a blue sky peaking out from between the leaves.

Look Mum, No Hands! is a tender story about friendship and growing up.

It explores a visually beautiful, and physically surprising, coming-of-age story about two friends playfully testing their own boundaries to see what is possible.

Together they explore freedom, taking risks and independence and how they change, depending on who you are.

For children aged 7+
