Mother Tongues

Lullabies for adults

Sleep, my yellow desert bird,
Sleep, my pomegranate flower

Don’t be sad;
I gave you away to seek wisdom,
– not because I didn’t love you

But life is so short;
the world only one day

– Traditional Persian lullaby

Lean back into the hammock – under the big night sky – for a concert-performance where tones and rhythms weave dream web that invites you into the borderland between wakefulness and sleep.

MOTHER TONGUES is a dream journey of music and drama woven by lullabies, rhythms and folk song from near and far; about sorrow, longing, lust and rage as human raw material. The performance examines identity as an intertwining of universal, cultural and relational roots, and asks the basic questions: Where do we come from? What do we come from? What are we shaped by, deep down?

The concert-performance is created by ENSEMBLE NEANÍDA. The ensemble consists of 7 female musicians, singers and dancers with a common passion for folk music and -dance – especially from African, European and Middle Eastern cultures. The ensemble brings the traditional expressions into a contemporary context that integrates music, movement and drama into a united expression.
