A mother’s heart: children keep all our tears is a performance about the tragedy of mothers whose children are on the front line. The storyline of the performance revolves around a woman’s memories of love, birth, childhood, and the anticipation of what may not happen because of the War. The story combines three time dimensions: past, present, and the possible happy future.
However, there is another side of reality and a key question: “What if he never comes back?”. Realizing the cyclical nature of events and life, the woman is almost ready to accept her reality but allows herself to live in a moment of hope for the last time. The performance is based on personal texts written by Ukrainian mothers to their sons during Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, including letters from women in a bomb shelter in Mariupol and a woman from Lviv whose two sons died on the front line.

The performance is in Ukrainian with English subtitles.
