Baby blues

Three women, three stories of love and of new life

This performance is about the choice every woman has to make. The choice to be or not to be a mother

«This performance is about the choice every woman has to make. The choice to be or not to be... a mother. I had an idea of taking up several excellent, successful women, who have accomplished their professional career – actresses and dancers – and asking them to tell about their choices. However, it turned out that those women who have chosen not to have children pulled out of the project. So, the performance has become documentary indeed – multifaceted and true – as real life is. It came out as a performance about mother-hood. About chickens that every female turns into once she has given a birth to a baby, it’s also about our foreordination, as well as about epidural anesthesia, husbands, baby blues, society stereotypes about mothers, loneliness, insomnia and other things that can be danced out only".
