As you know, we built the site for the London theatre company Tangled Feet quite some time ago, but still, we had never been to one of their productions - well until this week. I knew that Tangled Feet shows are quite physical and feel 'live' and in the moment, and it was great to actually experience this. The actors jumped about and really used their bodies to express themselves and there was a great atmosphere.
This is a story about parenthood, as we follow two different couples as they deal with the arrival of their baby and the first year of childhood. It is not a Disney story, where everyone is perfect and there is a predictably happy ending. Here, parenthood is very complex, sometimes wonderful, and sometimes not. There are high-pitched voices of adoration, caos, post partum depression. We watch how parenthood changes lives, ultimately ending the relationship of one couple, while the other couple stays together despite the end of their party lifestyle.
We swap focus from one household to another, each linked together with comments from the Midwife (played by Laura Mugridge who was amazing), and songs played on children's instruments.
Really enjoyed it. You can learn more here:tangledfeet.com
