Show in english
Brimming with sardonic humor, “Mama Love” is a one-woman show in which performer Lea Whitcher plays with the absurdities of the idealized and toxic images of motherhood in which she finds herself enmeshed. Against the backdrop of the 2020 Swiss vote on granting new fathers two weeks’ paternity leave, she feels the urgent need to go public with an unembellished account of her first fortnight as a mother. Using the persona “Lea Blair Whitcher”, she links lived experience with current discourses on motherhood and sketches out quizzical utopian models of life in a society beyond the bounds of patriarchy. Using the tools of stand-up comedy, and a large dose of wicked wit, Whitcher thrashes out a path through a jungle of everyday situations and social clichés while reflecting on what we find funny and why.
