Parrakas Madonna -The Bearded Madonna- is a project to create a mono opera in several languages with voice, cello and puppets after the poem by Eira Stenberg. This form of trio is inspired by Bunraku, a traditional Japanese puppet theatre.
The expression of feminine emotions beyond a culture is sought by the ensemble of music, images and poem.
The mono opera tells about the family from a woman’s point of view, but not a chronological story. It is memories or interior landscapes of the woman who confronts the collapse of the family with pain, sadness, criticism and hope.
The performance duration will be about 50 minutes.
