Look Mum, No Hands!

Daryl Beeton Productions and Mimbre

London

2021

A new piece of physical theatre that combines an original score, with new approaches to choreography.

About Look Mum, No Hands!

Look Mum, No Hands! is a tender story all about friendship and growing up which playfully explores this idea of independence vs interdependence, vulnerability and strength, using striking physical imagery that will linger in people’s minds.

The show takes creative advantage of the fact that one of the characters uses a wheelchair to create new acrobatic shapes and choreographies that are original and unexpected. Using a combination of theatre, movement and acrobatics as a powerful narrative tool, the two friends play, pushing the boundaries of what is possible, until together they find the perfect balance of each of their limits.
