FROM OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Story of the Mother, this thrilling dance adaptation The Mother premieres in Edinburgh this December starring internationally acclaimed prima ballerina, Natalia Osipova. This enchanting production has a strictly limited run of only two performances.

As a young single mother sets out to save her child, she must face impossible trials and cross the line between dreams, reality and life and death itself. Will she succumb to the forces of evil, or will the power of motherhood prevail?

The Mother is a compelling, instinctive story about motherhood. With an original score by Frank Moon and Dave Price, design by Yann Seabra and lighting by David Plater, this avant-garde new piece conjures a dangerous, kaleidoscopic world, combining narrative dance and drama.

Natalia Osipova takes the lead alongside the multi-award-winning Jonathan Goddard

Director and choreographer Arthur Pita

Original music Frank Moon and Dave Price

Dramaturge Anna Rulevskaya

Set Designer Yann Searba
