All About My Mother explores the parent we least want to grow up into but can’t help seeing ourselves become. Here, we try to understand the matriarch, to get under her skin but not make her angry; to get under her skin and use it as a blanket; to get under her skin, press our cheek against it and love her.
This piece was conceived from a conversation between a granddaughter and a grandfather, about the different women around them. From opposite sides of the sofa and life, they recollect and imagine. There will be some singing, some dancing, some gossiping, and some bringing back the dead as we figure out what we are and who we’re made of.
