“Interview with Madonna” is a performance, which is based on the interviews with single mothers from Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. It  develops ideas about  the role of the family and influence of parents on children. Choroegrapher in a poetic way makes dialogue with the spectator, herself and parents. Dialogue sometimes is alternating with the momologue, where questions take the rhetorical form. The performance balances between documentary and imaginary, fiction harshness and simplicity, holy and ordinary.
