Told by my Mother

Ali Chahrour  |  Performing Arts  |  2019  |  Lebanon
This performance tackles the levels of love within the family, and the related network of social relations. The work combines three families on stage, each saved by the mother. These are families that survived massacres caused by wars or contemporary social massacres, which their members are still attempting to overcome. Their bodies continue to carry stories of love and loss, as well as the need to dissociate from a tragic history and connect with the components of contemporary life.
