MY MOTHER, MY MIRROR
A performance essay by Camilla Graff Junior
Monday April 8, 8pm
Duration: 1 hour
What do I expect from a mother? What have I received from my mother? What will I pass on to my daughter? What are my fears? What did my mother tell me was possible? What did she show me was impossible? Does my anger come from my mother – or does it come from even further way back in my history? How is my mother present in my way of being a mother? Why did my mother start to drink? Why did I believe that I never would become a mother? How much do I repeat my mother’s life? Do I at all repeat my grandmother’s life? Are my mother and I alike?
Camilla Graff Junior in this performance invites the audience to help her to bring light to a number of these questions. She for this will bring a selected list of narratives to choose from and her grandmother’s egg timer.
