3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Featuring stories from the community of Bunbury about their Mums. As things have developed with COVID19 we have decided to adapt the performance into an online video experience that can be viewed on the allocated dates. These recorded performances will be streamed over 3 weekends with a different set of stories and bespoke songs each week. 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. Using storytelling, verbatim performance and music Whiskey & Boots invites audiences to listen and reflect on their maternal line.“I have seen many great artistic works in my career and I have to place Mama Stitch in that category. Community art should always be a quality driven process. Coupled with excellent talent and performances it is as good as any drama on any major stage.” Kim Jameson – ART ON THE MOVE
“Powerful tender hilarious sweet funny touching. I have not stopped telling people what an awesome experience it was!” Annette Peterson – Mama Stitch Joondalup Participant.
“…sensitivity, depth and deft handling of personal stories… with relevant musical interludes made the event a pleasure for the audiences” Jeremy Blank – Coordinator/Curator Joondalup Community Arts Association.

Cost:$5 + booking fee$1 from every ticket sold will be donated to bush fire relief. A password will be provided via email on the day of the show, so you and the people you love can view it at the same time “together”. We encourage viewers to interact via the post-show, Mum inspired “chat” and by writing letter to their own Mum (anonymously) that will be displayed in a virtual gallery on the Whiskey & Boots website with some shared on social media. Things are very strange right now and we need to find ways to connect more than ever (even if its digitally). Performed by Georgia King, Mark Storen, Holly Garvey & Tom Garvey.Presented by Whiskey & Boots and Bunbury Regional Art Gallery. Supported by the City of Bunbury and The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
