Etcetera Theatre




Collapse is a conversation about motherhood. It’s a game with the audience, a fun fair where memories are played.

On stage, the performer jumps from one character to another in a kind of tryptic – the mother who smiles; the mother who swears; the child.

The mother who smiles is in control. Is she? The other doesn’t know which way to turn to. These two mothers are one only, two sides of the same woman.

And where is the child while her mum collapses? Does she perceive her mum’s disintegration? Perhaps she plays imagining perfect families, or perhaps families as dysfunctional as hers. Definitively, the child plays.

Warning: This performance contains scenes of sexual content and child abuse that may be unsuitable for a younger audience.
