Blue Elephant Theatre presents a double bill of comedy shows exploring motherhood and and the female body.

Baby Plus Two will be performed on its own on Thursday 30th May at 2pm as a BABY FRIENDLY showing followed by a workshop so bring your little one along!

Baby Plus Two

"There is no more sombre enemy of good art than the pram in the hall"
....said some bloke who was clearly no good at multitasking. This dance solo is our rebuttal.

Pram firmly in the hallway, Baby Plus Two brings to life the physical and psychological experiences of early parenthood with dance, spoken word, video and original music.

From breast engorgement to mastery of nappy-sniffing via a constant low-level angst, Baby Plus Two is an emotional journey, filled – like motherhood itself – with angst, humour and love.

“Humorous and relatable… the mommy-parody at the end will surely be in my head for the rest of the week” Emma Iskowitz
“A funny and touching realisation of the first two years of parenthood.....Really enjoyable – lively and funny.” Audience Feedback

Choreographed and performed by: Lise Smith

Legs

Legs are what most humans stand on. They also allow humans to walk, crouch and lunge. If at any point in your life you have used your legs, thought about legs or if you know someone with legs. Then this is the show for you.

*warning this show may contain legs. ‘
