This publication is a performance script which has elements of an instruction manual, invitation, ideas book, collage, template and recipe. It is also a document of a creative process. The Mums and Babies Ensemble was a series of public workshops and events convened by three mums/theatre-makers and their babies. It was prompted by the desire to integrate the structure and chaos of performance-making and motherhood, to create a space that would meet the needs of the parents and babies equally, to capture some memories, to grow a community, and to pass something on eventually. This book is our offering to anyone who has ever been a baby as well as any artistically-minded parents and their newborns. The Mums and Babies Ensemble was part of an AHRC-funded script development and public engagement project led by Duška Radosavljević.
