The Other Side of the Garden

This performance revolves around loss, sacrifice and death. It presents “The Story of a Mother” by Hans Andersen, about a mother who seeks the king of death to bring back her son. During her journey, she loses her voice, her hair and her eyes, and fails to rescue her son. This radical transformation of the mother during her journey reminds us of the transformation of humans during war.
