Taking audiences into a series of recognisable spaces, including a museum, studio and maternity ward, this non-narrative work draws on the memories of director Gabriela Carrizo and her performers to trigger disquieting reflections about motherhood.
Suffering, desire, fear, life and death are unexpectedly intertwined in Mother, which shies away from neither the subconscious nor the stuff of nightmares, reflecting the unstable atmosphere of a David Lynch film. The soundscape has a cinematic quality, sometimes amplified to disconcerting effect. It is matched by surreal visual imagery and choreography of rare imagination where bodies bend, flip, contort and isolate.
Peeping Tom’s 32 rue Vandenbranden, seen as part of LIMF at the Barbican, won the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production. ‘Their talent is terrifying,’ concludes Le Monde.
