When did you last ask your mother to dance?

“I am aware that I still exist, that I am alive. That there is someone who calls me mom, that means somebody loves me.”

DNA is an invite to dance again. How would you like to dance, mom, if you could decide?

DNA – Dansa Nära Anhörig is a docufiction and a dance performance with four duets between four actors and their real mothers.

It is a performance about distance, closeness, food, limitless love, sorrow, loss and renewal. Fierceness and tons of courage.

Four mothers tell us about their lives, four children listen and dance along. May I have this dance? How close may I be?
