Heather grew up wanting to be a writer, and then accidentally became a lucha libre wrestler aged 21. Since then she has launched herself fully in to a series of adventures, including writing feminist narratives on wrestling; and bringing jovial violence to London's cabaret scene. Her practice is combining wrestling with anything and anyone who wants to make art.
Being a parent and a wrestler are not dissimilar. The pay is bad. Your body hurts. No matter how hard you try, the rest of the world thinks your efforts are often ridiculous. Who would win in a battle between Instagram and the NHS? Can a working Mum fight off the patriarchy armed only with wine and self belief? Using live wrestling, interviews, monologue and a cast of the best wrestlers in London, Mummy Vs is a bold kick to the face of outdated views on what a parent should be. Arts council funded 2020 - 2022, touring 2022.
