For the first time the Shire of Moora and Gardiner Street Arts Collective are collaborating and co-hosting a wonderful community arts project.

Mama Stitch is a show about mums and we want to hear your stories.

Whiskey & Boots will be in residency in Moora for three weeks in July to hear your stories about Moora mums and perform them at GSAC.

If you want to be involved and tell your mum stories, contact Nat Maloy on events@moora.wa.gov.au


Mama Stitch is a storytelling experience, celebrating Mums in all their imperfections, challenges and triumphs.

A cross section of people from the community are interviewed, ranging in age, experience and background.

These interviews are edited and presented as β€œHeadphone Verbatim” (meaning the actor wears headphones and delivers the text as they hear them, live, without embellishment).

Each story is live scored by our band Kettlefish, with an original and unique musical response.

The work is intimate; performed in the cosiness of Gardiner Street Arts Collective. We invite the audience into the space with toast and tea (we bake fresh bread for each show in the space) so the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.

At the end of each show we invite the audience to write an anonymous letter to their own mum that we display in the space. That way, the space and set are continually built as more people engage with it.
