Du bist meine Mutter

In the organizer's words:

"YOU ARE MY MOTHER" by Joop Admiraal

Solo play by movingtheatre as part of the "Verwandlungen" festival - 3 solos

In this award-winning solo for two characters, Achim Conrad plays a son who visits his dementia-stricken mother in a nursing home and transforms into her. A timelessly beautiful, comic piece of theater by Joop Admiraal about old age, life, dementia and love. A subtle balancing act between the private and the generally comprehensible, between comedy and melancholy.

"Achim Conrad succeeds in this balancing act with bravura ... he makes it poignantly clear that a person with all his fears and experiences, moods and longings is still here and fighting against decay." (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
