Lullaby follows on from Rutherford’s projects KIN and Broth, and looks at family, ageing and the children she never had. Adding the voices of other middle-aged women who never reproduced, this film and live performance explores the personal and public aspects of this emotionally loaded terrain.
Fair Isle musician Inge Thomson has created an intricate soundscape of voices and music based on a series of lullabies (traditional and newly-penned). Lullabies are a space to sing the unsung, a place to say the unsayable. You’re alone. Nobody is listening, and you can express the feelings that are not okay to express in society.
"Lullaby is an even-handed yet powerful and brave paean to womanhood, feminism and choice - sweet, humorous, but with bite" The Tempohouse - Lorna Irvine
