an absurdly poetic dance-theater work that speaks with a joyfully impolite voice about contemporary motherhood

Premiered (as Mother.F*cker.) at the Santa Cruz Fringe Festival

Los Angeles premiere at Highways Performance Space, 2012


"MOTHER. has an “acute sense of humor and insight. It’s likeable, playful, honest, heartfelt (heart wrenchingly so – I CRIED), accessible [and] hip.”

– Georgia Perry, Santa Cruz Weekly


“The multi-talented mater serio-comically enacted some of the labors and–sometimes unmentioned–responsibilities of post-Steinem 21st century motherhood.”

– Benn Widdey, The LAist


“…captivating and relatable… Suarez is able to capture the love and desperation of a mother in her movement.”

– Mickala Jauregui, alittlenightmusing

The creation of MOTHER. was made possible through support from Highways Performance Space, The Center for Cultural Innovation ARC Grant and Hothouse 2012, a UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance Space Residency Program. The Motherhood Exchange Project was made possible through support from The Flourish Foundation, the HeArt Project and Highways Performance Space.
