Look Mum, No Hands!

Look Mum, No Hands! is a tender tale of friendship and growing up. It explores a coming-of-age story about two friends testing their own boundaries.

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

In the show we see the two friends play. They push the boundaries of what is possible until, together, they find the perfect balance of their limits. Look Mum, No Hands! playfully explores ideas of vulnerability and strength. The story looks at independence as opposed to interdependence.

In the show one of the characters is a wheelchair user. The two actors use this to explore exciting acrobatic shapes and unexpected choreography. It is visually beautiful and physically surprising – you will be on the edge of your seat!

Look Mum, No Hands! is a Daryl & Co and Mimbre co-production.

Suitable for all ages.

Running time approximately 40 minutes.
