TAJNÁ ZPRÁVA Z PLANETY MATEK (MAMMA GUERILLA) / A SECRET MESSAGE FROM THE MOTHER PLANET (MAMMA GUERILLA)

Anna Saavedra

Cast: variable

A lonely astronaut lands on a planet inhabited only by mothers. Become a witness of his eccentric journey! Do you have children? Are you planning to have children? Why don’t you have children? What excuse do you usually use when people are asking you? Do you like mothers with children? What do you think of them? Do they disturb you? Do you admire them? Do you find them weird? Do you want to be like them? Who are they? A young Czech-Chilean author Anna Saavedra was trying to search for answers to these questions. And she learned everything you always wanted to know about motherhood but were afraid to ask! Motherhood has always been an up-to-date topic, it concerns all generation, it is shared by all cultures, religions and mythologies and it has been Alpha and Omega of our private life.

 

Fascinating, disturbing, comic and at the same time tormenting essay about motherhood in all its forms is a colourful collage of dialogues, monologues, lyrical parts, ironic comments and documentary material that are trying to examine this white spot on the map of our universe. The main character of the play is a choir that consists of one hundred mothers and their individual voices come up…

 

The play was written within the residential programme of the Centre for Contemporary Drama of the theatre Divadlo LETI.

  The play is available also in English translation.
