This Egg: Unconditional

ThisEgg's mother and daughter show Unconditional is on Sunday 25 June at 7.00pm in the Burton Taylor Studio.

HI THERE, WHY DON’T YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF?

Hi, my name is Josie (ThisEgg) and I am making a show with my mum (Stefanie Mueller). She wants it to be called UNCONDITIONAL. I’m not sure about the title yet but she will probably get her way. We are both theatre makers but have never made a piece of theatre together, so we thought we’d give it a go… Mothers, daughters, love and limits. Is this ‘bond’ unbreakable’?

NICE TO MEET YOU! SO, WHAT’S THE SHOW YOU’RE BRINGING TO OFFBEAT AND WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Our performance at Offbeat will be a work in progress, so we’re not completely sure what the show is really ABOUT yet. It’s about us, but it’s not autobiographical - it’s not our story. In fact, there is no story. In order to tell a story, you have to make decisions. A choice is made. By making that choice, you exclude all other options. All other relationships. 

WHAT KIND OF PERSON DO YOU THINK WILL ENJOY THIS SHOW?

We hope this show will be universal. That means, for example, you don’t have to be a mother or a daughter to enjoy this performance. We hope there is something in there for everyone. It’s a delicate mixture of many experiences - both real and fantastical.

ARE YOU EXCITED TO TAKE THIS SHOW TO OFFBEAT? WHY?

Offbeat Oxford feels like a really exciting new(ish) festival and we can’t wait to be part of it.
