“Orașul vorbește”: moving [m]others

“Orașul vorbește”: moving [m]others

Who is a good mother? Who is a bad mother? If I hold you too tight, does your soul come out? What do you do when you stick your tongue out? Have you ever seen your mother cry? What do you want to be when you grow up? How were you born? A delicate and powerful performance about motherhood, moving [m]others is a performative and unpredictable installation, born from the collective research of a mixed group of artists. Mothers, daughters and colleagues, they invite you for three hours into a performative and participatory territory, like the earth that attracts, sustains, vibrates, creates, nourishes us and opens up. A map of desires, a game where you discover the rules and follow your own needs. A journey guided by questions. Interview with Alexandra Bălășoiu, choreographer of the show, about moving [m]others.
