When Your Baby Dies.jpg

Miscarriage is a ubiquitous yet rarely discussed human experience: 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss. when your baby dies combines contemporary dance with an original script and live experimental music. Using sensitivity, humour, and brutal honestly, this piece explores the trauma left on bodies by experiences of infant loss and infertility.
