Length: 1 h 15 min (no intermission)
Odeon Theatre, Bucharest
Suitable for ages 10 and above
All the women present their story at the same age – when they are thirty three years old, and get through historic circumstances starting with World War II till the present. These circumstances partly shape women’s lives, but the one who influences them directly, they would say, is their mother. We invite you to discover by yourselves to what extent that happens, in a performance that proposes a surprising directorial vision that combines theatre with opera arias.
The performance was produced in the framework of the third edition of Fabulamundi, Playwriting Europe, co-financed by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union 2017-2020.
