SWEET CHILD OF MINE @ The Horse’s Mouth

Sweet Child of Mine features award winning performance artist Bron Batten and her 60 year-old parents live onstage.

Providing frank opinions on contemporary performance, the avant garde and Bron’s own artistic past, her Mum and Dad’s insights are poignant, earnest and painfully hilarious.

Asking themselves and and the audience: what exactly is the POINT of art?

A mixture of theatre, dance, stand-up and awkward family function, Sweet Child of Mine is for anyone who has trouble talking to their parents about who they are – or what they do for a living.
