The Brick Presents: Sonntags wird gelogen Or We Only Lie On Sundays
Created by Leonie Bell with LOCAL GRANDMA
December 2 – 5 & 9 – 12, 2021 at the Brick Theater

On a random Montag in time: Mama waits for her long-lost husband to return from war and has rendered everything else invisible, including her daughter Gilly. A flock of mothers search for their daughter, Hanna; maternal chaos raves included. A strange chorus sings apologies to those wronged by Capitalism & a former employee is on the hunt for the long-longed-for adoptive (adult) child who will save her from geriatric isolation. In this dark humor Tanztheater landscape, matriarchal lineages converge and convene with mistranslations, misunderstandings, mundane anecdotes, and your weird neighbor. Cacophonies of choral song and pedestrian movement; performed in German, English, & Denglish.

Featuring Ali Andre Ali, Leonie Bell, Olivia Bernabe, Caroline Burkhart, Sarah Finn, Marcella Murray
