|OMUGWO is an immersive theatre project that drives the conversation on pregnancy and women’s mental health, and the age long traditional African culture of women supporting women.
In Igbo traditional society, OMUGWO is a period when a mother takes out time to care for her daughter who has just had a baby.
In kelvinmary’s OMUGWO, a baby has been born and this baby must bridge the failing relationship between husband and wife.
Chimamanda’s last stroke to bring her failing marriage back from the brink, unfortunately, does little to save it. As the truth is peeled back, layer after layer, we are left to question stereotypes regarding culture, family, incest and Post Partum Depression.’
