Adoring mama, her spoiled son with his girlfriend - and his boyfriend, his autistic sister, and Fate mingle in a complex web of erotic relationships in Christina’s Beskou’s Mother...
Choreographer Beskou tries her hand for the first time a psychodrama whose main character is The Mother. As her satellites, we find her Son, his Lovers, her Daughter and a ‘Friend’, each of whom highlights the relationships, emotions and reactions they provoke... Whose friend? Everyone’s or no one’s? The presence of the Friend creates confrontations and havoc, until he takes his leave and the tedious routine of everyday living falls back in place.
The production is however not drowned by psychobabble. With bold lines it expresses and accentuates the dramatic moments of confrontation and integrates thereby the Male-Female confrontation. An excellent and successful portrayal of her goal.
ELEFTHEROTYPIA, 26th June, 1993. By Mirka Dimitriadi-Psaropoulou
An excellent performance, with extraordinary dancers. We refer to principally Christina Beskou, Elias Panos Argyropoulos, the moving Freddie Rutz and Ianna Mavrogiorgi..
The outstanding fact of the performance was the powerful choreography. Full of searching and replete with surprises, the biggest of which was the quality we saw. We enjoyed a night of dance with professional dancers who could and did fulfill the roles they took on.
Christina Beskou showed us a different choreographic style: more mature, working from within the subject matter that she took on, concentrating on emphasizing it without causing controversy...
