An autobiographical and personal family drama
In Stora Scenen (2012) Tova Mozard places herself, her mother, her maternal grandmother and a therapist in the limelight on the main stage of the Royal Dramatic Theatre. We meet women from three generations, in makeup and costume. Without a script, in an empty, dark theatre, they share their conversation, which deals with memories, dreams and loss. Although the content is deeply personal, we still recognise with the intricate roles that exist in any family; how we support each other one minute, only to hurt each other the next.
Documentary meets enactment in Mozard’s practice
Mozard’s works are often autobiographically based and can be inscribed into a documentary tradition. Her photographs and films often feature authentic encounters between real people, against a confusing backdrop of fiction and enactments.
