Body of a Mother
An original Tragedy Created and Performed by DAI’s 2nd-year MFA students
Natural water resources are being privatized at the expense of ordinary people. Water is scarce. Dammed. Bottled. Rationed. Contaminated. It’s the corporation versus the community. Whose bodies are at stake when the well runs dry? Who will pay the ultimate price? Body of a Mother is an exploration of how violence against the land has a direct and lasting impact on violence against women.
Experience the awesome, visceral power of the Chorus as Dell’Arte’s 2nd Year MFA Ensemble dives into the realm of Tragedy, a theatrical form with ancient roots in the human experience. Through physical and vocal alchemy, the actors conjure universal forces at play in the space of the stage. In the words of theatre visionary Antonin Artaud, Tragedy bracingly reminds us all that, in spite of our best intentions, “the sky can still fall on our heads.”
