Mine is recommended for audiences over the age of 10.

Using the computer construction game Minecraft as a kind of theatre, a group of gamer/performers between the ages of 10 to 45 enact different narratives, live, in front of an audience of roughly the same age.Grendel’s mother’s brutal act of revenge; the lessons that Bambi’s mother teaches him before that horrible day in the meadow; The Terminator travels back from the future on a mission to assassinate Sarah Connor, in order to prevent her unborn son from destroying machine-kind. Other stories emerge from the landscape: stories of hyper-strength, galactic love and worry. Of regret and shame. Of a most powerful bond.

These stories become the myths within a performance that unpacks one of the world’s most essential relationships — that of mother and son.

Created by Maiko Yamamoto, Remy Siu, Conor Wylie, Leah Weinstein, Hokuto MacDuff and 4 youth gamer/performers
