Dearest compost, I am your mother and I am your child.

We live in an ecologically precarious time. Some of us don't want to bring children into this world, others are worried their children won't have a world to grow old into... but we've still got a whole lot of love to give. Rethink what it means to give birth and be birthed, and dance along with us in this gooey, camp and interactive subversion of family portraits, birthing classes, and evolutionary biology.

Over the course of the performance, the audience transforms from strangers to the beginnings of a family. Mother of Compost is a queer and unruly family gathering
and a communal grieving for what is being lost and everything left to fight for.

From the minds of queer performance-makers Noémie Huttner-Koros and director
Andrew Sutherland, Mother of Compost asks you to roll up your sleeves this Fringe
Festival... Change only comes from getting your hands dirty.
