Mama Stitch is a storytelling experience, celebrating Mums in all their imperfections, challenges and triumphs. A cross section of people from the community are interviewed, ranging in age, experience and background. These interviews are edited and presented as “Headphone Verbatim” (meaning the actor wears headphones and delivers the text as they hear them, live, without embellishment).

Each story is live scored by our band Kettlefish, with an original and unique musical response. The work is intimate; performed in galleries, foyers and community spaces. We invite the audience into the space with toast and tea (we bake fresh bread for each show in the space) so the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. At the end of each show we invite the audience to write an anonymous letter to their own mum that we display in the space. That way, the space and set are continually built as more people engage with it.

A must see. Georgia King is incredible to watch as she voices different stories about mothers. Funny and poignant.

I was fortunate to attend the ‘Mama Stitch’ performance at Joondalup and was one of the subjects. What a
wonderful concept! The performance piece was so well done and so
entertaining at the same time. Very cleverly done and most enjoyable!
