In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world was filled with confusion and fear. People were dying, hospitals were full, shops were shut, and theatres dark. Still, the creation of art and life itself could not be stopped. ‘Lockdown Baby’ documents the stories of three professional performing artists who became pregnant during the first lockdown of the pandemic. These women and mothers-to-be took their art forms from the stage to the city streets to share their intimate expressions of love, fear, and hope for their unborn babies.
