Look At Me Now, Mummy is a comi-tragic one-woman show, made in 2008 with Vincent’s longest term Polish collaborator Aurora Lubos, 8 months after she gave birth to her first child. Look At Me Now, Mummy is an intimate, funny and moving portrait of a mother’s desire to look the part, whilst not really knowing what part it is that she is supposed to be playing. It’s about trial and error and theatrical failure, with a baby always crying somewhere in the distance.
“Vincent’s feminist subtext never overpowers Lubos’s exquisitely pitched performance or compromises the choreography’s harrowingly sustained focus. Small but beautiful.” The Observer
