Tom Lanoye - Translation Alain Van Crugten - Directed by Piet Arfeuille. A universal and heartbreaking story in an unforgettable solo.
A tour de force theatrically masterfully performed by the Belgian actress Viviane De Muynck. The monologue of Tom Lanoye has the power of a Greek tragedy. The very presence and voice of the interpreter is enough to hypnotize the viewer. The frank and moving language of this text transports us into the world of a damned mother. She delivers the story of a son who commits the irreparable. How was she able to give birth to a terrorist? She desperately seeks an answer in the past, but a childhood like any other explains nothing about the fatal destiny of this beloved son. She speaks neither as a victim nor as an accuser. She utters a cry of the heart, the heart of a mother which breaks.
She becomes the witness of a subject so difficult and yet so important to tell. One takes the measure of the strength of the theater, which allows an empathy impossible elsewhere.
