The musical, starring actress-singers Nina and Mariona Castillo, is an intimate reflection on the relationship between a mother and daughter when the latter leaves home
The Círcol Maldà is currently staging Mares i Filles (Mothers and Daughters), a musical starring actress-singers Nina and Mariona Castillo, both of whom return together to the stage having coincided for the first time nine years ago with the runaway success Mamma Mia!
The performance is an impressionist collage portraying the relationship between a mother and her daughter when the latter decides to leave home to live her own life. The move opens a veritable Pandora’s Box for the mother, who will do everything in her power to keep her daughter at home.
Mares i Filles is the first artistic creation of the tandem composed of David Pintó, the writer and director, and Clara Peya, the composer and pianist of the performance, which is entirely song-based and lasts just over an hour.
The musical asks numerous questions of the audience, among others: When can we cut the umbilical cord that binds us to our children? What happens when, in any given moment, our mother needs us? What are the responsibilities of each of the parties? And their rights? And their obligations? Why does clinging to the past make us feel so comfortable? What does it means to be a mother? And a daughter?
Mares i Filles can be seen in the Círcol Maldà from Thursday to Saturday at 10 pm and on Sundays at 9 pm. Normal tickets are priced at 20 euros but can be purchased for 6 euros less here.
