The Mother is a powerful, narrative dance production choreographed and directed by Arthur Pita – a master storyteller. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s dark tale, The Story of a Mother, this sumptuously designed production stars international dance superstar Natalia Osipova and multi-award-winning dancer Jonathan Goddard.

This is an inventive new production which conjures up a dangerous, kaleidoscopic world, combining narrative dance and drama. In setting out to save her sick child a young mother journeys into the unknown to face life and death. Will she succumb to the forces of evil, or will the power of motherhood prevail?

“… one of the most profoundly moving and emotionally compelling dance performances you are ever likely to see” – The Herald ★★★★★

“The Mother is a truly original piece that satisfies on all levels, from its stunning visual imagery to the downright weirdness of its characters and the eerie musical score.” – Dancing Times

“When it comes to blurring the line between acting and dancing, it would be hard to imagine a better dream team than the one behind The Mother” – The List
