Choreographer Ryan Djojokarso is fascinated by interpersonal relationships and social behaviour. Aided by a keen sense of humour, he translates the big topics into playful and poignant performances. In his latest production Mom:Me he dives into the bond between mother and child. It is a bond that is seemingly unbreakable in our society, and yet is sometimes broken or badly worn. Djojokarso uses his experience with the changeable relationship with his own mother and brings together drama, dance, and live music in a monumental stage setting. Mom:Me is a multidisciplinary gem about a subject that touches every one of us.
