Note: ticket sales for "Mother Tongue" are currently on hold.
“To know a person is to hear them speak and to look at their trash. And thus, ‘Mother
Tongue’ is born.” The first UNCSA devised theater production conceived and directed
by a student, “Mother Tongue” was inspired by Bertolt Brecht’s “Mother Courage and
Her Children” and interviews with Brazilian waste pickers.
This new theatrical experience will be filled with music, language and things we throw
away. In times of accumulation of waste, “Mother Tongue” asks us to look at our trash
and listen to the essential workers living off it. The work is Marina Zurita’s fourth-year
Director’s note: recommended for mature audiences.
