A video performance about a single man’s journey to parenthood, by Wayne Steven Jackson.

The law changes all the time. A continuous catalogue of amendments, acts, and appeals, and just one more signature on yet another piece of paper. But, in 2019 something shifted. From one small piece of legislation an impossible story grew. And for the first time, I could begin to imagine. Who you were, and who I could become.

A playful and poignant performance letter to a future child from their future father.

In 2019, the law in the UK changed to allow for single father surrogacy. From Me To Us is an important project that provides the space for discussions about parenthood, whilst documenting the political change against the backdrop of autobiographical experience.

From Me To Us premiered right here and on YouTube Thursday 12 November 2020, 7.15pm.
