Its been a while I went out for myself and last night was exactly what I needed, dinner and drinks with some friends followed by the opening night of the hilarious parenting circus -Do You Even Gestate, Bro? by the @elementalperformancetroupe which is currently on as a part of the @melbfringe at the @gasworksartspark
Nearly 10 minutes into the show, I had no clue my pregnancy hormones were going to make a comeback, one moment I was laughing and the other moment I was tearing up recalling flashbacks of my own pregnancy and Madison’s birth.
What a talented group of performers I am still awestruck imagining how they pulled off the aerial s** scene using a trapeze live on the stage with such ease. During the show there were a few narratives/acts that really hit home for me but the one on postpartum depression and mental health raised the bar, from single to same sex parents, all kind of pregnancies and birthing issues even a miscarriage, the show is so inclusive. Oh did I mention I also saw some diapers flying around the room, luckily none landed in my glass of wine haha!
If you want to experience some immaculate choreography and finessed aerial acts, while watching a show that is funny and relatable - you’ve got to check it out, perfect for a mums night out or to go watch with your partner/husband. For tickets check 🔗LINKINBIO #invited
