Moeder (Mother) - press review

"The company manages to hypnotize the audience again and again. Apparent irrationality and surreal scenes, in which an almost slapstick humour is surprising, form a kind of nightmare that disturbs and fascinates at the same time."
Dresdner Kulturmagazin 09.12.2017 (in German)

"Gabriela Carrizo’s direction induces a dream state. She goes to work on your subconscious. […] Seeing Moeder, I struggled to remember the last time I felt so brilliantly all at sea in a theatre."
What’s on Stage 05.09.2017 (in English)

"[Moeder] is brilliant in all its simplicity. But at the same time furiously cleverly done."
Svenska Yle 01.09.17 (in Swedish)

"[Moeder] opens up repeated emotional floodgates. There are those who laugh loudly, there are those who cry silently, some who are frightened without fear of denouncing themselves. In Moeder, there is not much to hide."
Publico 30.06.2017 (in Portuguese)

"In seemingly banal settings - a retirement home for Vader, an apartment-museum in Moeder - which form the vertebral column of the evolution of the characters, the spectacular excesses formidably encircled by Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier attest to the aesthetic and human scale of their vision since their beginnings."
Le Monde 25.01.2017 (in French)
