Wearing mum’s makeup

Wearing mum's makeup

In 2019 we bought a bunch of pompey mums together asking questions about identity, health & theatre. The relationship was similar to the experiences of Queer people and the perception of what this means.
After 2 years we’ve created workshops, safe spaces and a community to develop work and create a show.

For years we’ve passed down the brushes, looking back in the mirror at the faces of our predecessors, reimagining their versions of the painted face. We ask; What is the face you want to paint?

Come join as we redefine typical cabaret featuring performances from our local wearing mums makeup artists and collaborators.

It’s a sit down at a table affair with accompanying exhibition and some takeaways.

It’s also Pay What You Can so you’ve got no excuse, huh?
