Mother has been bitten by a dog on her breast.
In the kitchen, mother once told me a story about famine.
Grandmother once asked for a whole egg for her birthday.
Grandmother’s flesh is all gone now.
The family recipe.
I have forgotten the last ingredient like I am afraid to forget my mother’s voice
I will keep mother from death.
I will discover the missing ingredient.
A physical theatre performative lecture about connections, inheritance and loss. A cooking show that is an attempt to understand what holds us apart and what brings us together. An intimate psycho-magical documentary.
LEONOR ESTRADA FRANCKE
Leanor is a Peruvian multi-disciplinary performance and theatre-maker based in Glasgow. Her practice is under perpetual revolt and she is adamantly attempting to remake her connections to the audience in these times of unpresence. She works with the opposing textures of testimony and surrealism, using every language available to reach states of collective imagination in cahoots with the community of spectators. She enjoys lying, but does so very badly.
Performed by Leonor Estrada Francke
Video Artist / Lucas Kao
Art Director / Ruben San Roman
Supported by SURGE Physical Theatre Bursary and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
