Moeder is not about a mother, but about several mothers. We talk about motherhood, absence, lack. The play searches the memory and the subconscious to reveal what the mother carries as desires, fears, sufferings or violence. (Gabriela Carrizo)
Moeder (mother), the second volume of a trilogy that began with Vader (2014) and will close with Kind (2018), is a work on memory that explores the ways in which the fabric of a life is a mosaic or meshwork collectively composed.

"Peeping Tom is one of the most enjoyable dance companies of the moment. Technically outstanding. Funny. Shocking. Stunning. Living. And above all excellent."
"The show works perfectly through striking metaphors, powerful allegories and images that linger in our thoughts for a long time. And the artists are simply dazzling."
"A classic but nonetheless touching, engaging and even funny portrait of the most beautiful role a woman can play, both on stage and in life."
