My Mother Had Two Faces: Reflections on Beauty, Aging, and Acceptance
An autobiographical one-woman dramatic comedy that dares to expose what lies beneath the mask of the perfect mother. Discovering her mother’s diaries after her death, Karin, our heroine, begins to examine the history of their complicated relationship from the gritty, urban streets of New York, to her Swiss mother’s manicured orderliness.
The story follows her mother’s exodus from her homeland to pursue stardom and a better life, and how her fixation with beauty and outward appearances influenced Karin’s sense of worth. Engaged in dialogue with her mirrored reflection, Karin wrestles with her own inner demons. What does the mirror uncover when we strip away the makeup?
Presented in a pseudo-fairytale style, utilizing multimedia and theatrical masks, it tips the Disney delusion on its head revealing the enchanting as well as the underbelly.
