Labour Intensive

Third Angel

Friday 17 April 2015

Third Angel has been talking to people in the birth business: Mothers, Fathers, Siblings, Midwives and Obstetricians, in a quest to understand more about the amazing physical feat that is giving birth.

From the terrible hospital food to the tender words whispered to take away the pain, the near death experiences to the love a first cry can bring, it’s all laid bare in this show, as our average family takes you through some extraordinary tales of truly remarkable events.

Labour Intensive was commissioned by the University of Derby and Professor Susan Hogan and is part of The Birth Project a two year research project looking at how various art forms can explore the experiences of birth and mutual recovery.
