Stories about Mums from the communities in the City of Kalamunda.
Like threads of yarn woven through a needle, stitching us together, our mother’s advice, her stories and memories shape us as we curve, bend and braid to find our place in the world.
Using storytelling, headphone verbatim and music Whiskey & Boots invites audiences to listen and reflect on their maternal line. Stories about Mums are collected by Whiskey & Boots from the people of Kalamunda and surrounding communities, distilled and presented as Headphone Verbatim Performance (meaning the actor wears headphones and delivers the text as they hear them, live, without embellishment). Each story is underscored with an original and bespoke musical response inspired by the stories shared.
Come and have a slice of toast, a hot cup of tea and homemade jam while listening to the reflections of people from this community about their Mums. Audiences are invited to contribute to the project by writing an anonymous “Dear, Mum” letter to be displayed in the space.
Mama Stitch is a project unique to the place it is created – part performance, part installation – celebrating the mothers across the City of Kalamunda in all their variations.
