In this intimate, world premiere multimedia solo work, filmmaker Gabri Christa utilizes storytelling, visuals, and dance to reveal a deeply personal account of experiencing her Dutch mother’s dementia. More…
The piece is part family album, part story of love and race, but above all, a reckoning with the harrowing consequences of a devastating illness that affects an increasing percentage of the world’s population.
"Transitions from storytelling to movement are seamless and Christa’s background as a dancer and choreographer are evident; she captures the vulnerability of a child surrounded by war, the confusion and frustration of a daughter watching her mother’s slide into dementia, and the struggle of an aging woman losing physical and mental capabilities. The film portions of the show are best when Christa interacts with them...Gabri Christa has created a rich and moving tribute to her mother." Full Review

Don't see it if You don't like combining theater and dance. But give it a chance. It's a beautiful show. I hope Gabri does a sequel; I want to know more.
See it if you want to experience a life story, an intimate setting, great use of photography, light, movement and a few carefully chosen props.
