Birthing Imaginaries


Jabuti Theatre presents

Birthing Imaginaries

Exploring the expectations women hold about pregnancy, childbirth and early motherhood. Birthing Imaginaries is verbatim theatre; using aerial, physical theatre and puppetry to represent these women’s stories.

This project is in development.

Jabuti Theatre underwent a five-day residency in May 2016 at Dancebase, hosted by Conflux and Artistic Director Vicki Amedume of Upswing Theatre. Rachael Macintyre (Artistic Director – Jabuti Theatre) has been and continues to interview women and engage with different groups around Edinburgh, Scotland. Rachael is looking for women who would like to share their story; to be a part of putting together a performance piece that aims to represent the reality of a lot of women’s experiences of motherhood.

Please contact Rachael if you would like to share your story.
