HOЯS CIЯCUITS | Dear Mum & Raum

Mandatory reservation

Dear mum

« I wish I was different – just like everyone else. »

Dear mum dramatises the experience before, during and after coming out. Coming out is an act of courage, authenticity and openness, it can be difficult as well as very liberating. It is about coming into conflict with oneself, one’s spirit, one’s soul and finally understanding one’s identity in order to accept oneself fully.

This solo is an inner journey, a letter to my mother, your father, our sisters and brothers … A path that takes us to the darkest facets of our inner world, where there is little colour, where we only hear the echo of our thoughts.

« Sometimes I feel like throwing myself against a wall to externalise the mental pain and turn it into physical pain. » 

Raum is a place of encounter with our demons, our fears and our forgiveness. It is a place of confrontation and a search for inner balance in order to move forward in peace. This performance seeks to accept the darkness that sometimes dominates us, and to soften it by creating a space without judgement and without fear. Raum is a space for liberation and speaking out, it is a stifled cry that we have held inside us for too long.
