Event Details

Based on their own experiences as artists and mothers, the performers of the Berlin-based collective still hungry examine the stigma surrounding the German concept “Rabenmutter” (raven mother—a selfish, neglectful mother) with courage, intelligence, and artistry. Thanks to creative support from the renowned British director Bryony Kimmings, they stage a striking, authentic world filled with stunning acrobatics, beautiful imagery, and honest humour.

One moment, the performers lovingly mother their children like hens, and the rhythms of their daily movements turn into skilful satirical choreographies. The next moment, memories of their strength as successful artists transform them into soaring eagles. With disarming directness—and the fearlessness of circus moms—the performers invite us to question our preconceived notions of working mothers, women, and circus performers.
