Live performance has paved the way for people of all colours and creeds to express themselves and their ideas to a world of open-hearted and like-minded people. You could argue it’s the very beauty of art. You could also argue that it’s simply a recipe for great entertainment and a night out that’s both enjoyable and thought-provoking.
Mother’s Bloomers is an exploratory performance platform that champions bold new short works by queer performers – and on Thursday 16th November, they will be bringing this platform to ARC in Stockton.
Starting off the bonanza will be Jon Luke – a singer-songwriter with a penchant for introspective pieces of music that will have you thinking of warm memories of home.
Holly Gallagher will also be showcasing her talent with her performance of ‘Tensile Strength or How to Survive at Your Wit’s End’ – a show all about how we live in a world that can’t slow down. If you’ve ever struggled with anxiety or that sinking feeling of not being able to keep your emotions above water, this will be a great watch.
The show will also feature visceral and jaw-dropping artistry from performers Beth O’Doherty, Virginia Kennard and Jamie Tansley, with each show bringing across their unique personalities. Expect a deluge of images and ideas brought forward from subjects ranging from gender identity to thoughts on marriage.
After touring their show ‘Drag Me to Love’, North East based theatre company Bonnie and The Bonnetes will be performing their new show ‘Our Mums Are Beautiful’ – a show that promises to show us how important our mothers were and always be in our lives.
Mother’s Bloomers is priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, so you can give as much or as little as you think the show deserves. For further information about the performance, or to find out more about what’s coming up at ARC in Stockton, head to arconline.co.uk.
