Mother Load is an uplifting and powerful choreographic work in two parts, reflecting upon relationships between parent and child.

In part one, Performance With Hope, Grace and her 9-year old daughter share the stage, making decisions together; Grace is trying her best to raise a woman in front of you. Part two, Things Stack Up, is a solo performance, using the subject of education to explore notions of play, agency, risk and physicality.

Yorkshire based Grace Surman dallies around the terms performance (art), live art, theatre and choreography; in Mother Load she invites you to question her as an artist, a woman and a mother.

“This tender piece will have parents laughing and crying with recognition” The Skinny

Mother Load is presented as part of Transform 17, a festival of bold, local & international theatre – transformfestival.org

Commissioned by Yorkshire Dance Amplified and supported by Transform.
