In 2016, Hannah Ballou made the first incarnation of goo:ga, a live art comedy show when she was 8 months pregnant with her first child. Five years later, Ballou is expecting her second. The biological process is the same, but everything else could not be more different; her 5-year-old wants in on the action, one co-star is in an urn, she’s haunted by the ghosts of miscarriages past, and honestly she just cannot get as worked up about kid number two. goo:ga has fun with the impossibility of re-performing old work even though you really should try to give your second child everything you gave your first. It’s a cross between Ali Wong’s Hard Knock Wife and Ursula Martinez’ A Family Outing- 20 Years On.
(Warning: goo:ga contains salty language, naked preggos, erstwhile animals, dodgy child acting, ironic pelvic movement, ukulele feminism, four minutes of literally nothing happening, and themes of fetal illness.)
