Made From Love
'Made From Love' is a devised theatre show exploring biological, social & emotional aspects of pregnancy & pregnancy loss, whilst challenging traditional gender roles.
Although approximately 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage, it remains associated with shame, confusion and isolation. Early pregnancy loss is afforded little awareness, social support and health care, despite the physical and emotional distress it causes. Informed by conversations with The Miscarriage Association and others, we feel it's important to question the gender norms surrounding pregnancy to demystify women's health issues and recognise the impact on men's mental health.
Inspired by Bryony Kimming’s autobiographical performance art, Complicite’s use of technology and Frantic Assembly’s movement work, ‘Made From Love’ engages audiences with these themes, and creates a space for further conversation about pregnancy complications.
We are interviewing medical practitioners and a socially diverse group of people who have experienced challenges with fertility and expectations around pregnancy, and experimenting with C&T’s ‘Prospero’ software to create a curated online experience, reach new audiences/participants, and share access to facts and support.
