The Mirror is a story about never being able to accept your true-self. The Narcissist tries to fulfill the sensation of emptiness with desperate attention seeking, ugly tricks and ” a perfect facade”. However, this behavior keeps on growing the empty hole inside.
Performer: Elina Valtonen
Choreography: Nina Mamia
Director& sound engineer: Kasperi Nordman
Light designer: Ville Virtanen
“Mamia Company’s Mirror is a piece that irritates and provokes, but also
makes you laugh. Tragicomic character captures the stage with hilarious
monologue, that reminds us of the reality tv celebrities. Narcissism of
our times is shown as obsessive and pathetic.
Mirror is entertaining dance theatre with well thought text and
finalized choreography. Character work is excellent”.
