Newcomer’s Platform
Suitable for english audience

Mothers of Steel (Agata Siniarska, Mădălina Dan)

This project is an investigation into the phenomenology of tears that touches upon many themes - memory, history, death, happiness, fragility, innocence, strength, futuristic ontologies, etc. It puts into questions the social and cultural mechanisms related to public and private display of emotions. Contrasting personal statements with iconic scenes of crying in Eastern European context, it examines how emotions are manifested in different situations, and why we (or we do not) express them publicly. Within narratives concerning our biopolitics – cultural/national/emotional identities - the project approaches today's post-bodies/technological paradigms and it is an attempt to entangle the personal with the artificial.

In the context of Introducing - the Newcomer's Platform of Performing Arts Festival Berlin.
