Vincent Dance Theatre is one of the most consistently exciting dance companies of the last 20 years.

Inching its way through airbrushed beauty, boob jobs and Botox, victim-blaming, slut-shaming and misled motherhood, Motherland is a funny, moving show about what it means to be a woman.

Spurred on by the Spice Girls, Germaine Greer and Caitlin Moran, Vincent Dance Theatre goes into battle with the big boys, arguing against a narrow, over-sexualised definition of femininity.

A multi-talented ensemble of men, women and children cut across movement, live music, spoken word and song. Dismantling the dream that women can ‘have it all', calling into question the gender they were born into, and the price they are paying for it.
