Charlotte Engelkes
Min Mamma - En Dokumentärmusikal

My Mother – A Musical Documentary is a tribute to all mothers. With love, a gentle hand and glowing conviction, Charlotte Engelkes thanks our mothers for everything in her latest solo performance. We would not be who we are without them.

This somewhat crazy musical documentary embroils freshly made waffles, song and dance numbers about pills, cats, longing, drug abuse, as well as an endless trail of cigarette butts.

The portrait painted on stage could have been a dark one. But on the contrary, Charlotte Engelkes creates a loving tribute to all mothers at a breakneck pace and with brutally honest humor. At times, she is interrupted by her own mother, who was documented on film late in life. Here, her mother quips her own singular views on life, gnomes, motherhood in itself and the universe.

Charlotte Engelkes is a cross-genre director and performance artist who confidently moves between dance, theatre, performance art and opera – all performed in her own highly personal style. Her artistry is characterized by humor, surprises, grandiloquent costumes and brilliant folly. Engelkes is a great stage personality – colourful, imaginative and downright fantastic.
