PRESENTED BY PANGEA ART
A Chinese mother straddling Eastern and Western expectations while navigating the perilous path of perfect parenthood.
Aiyaa 哎呀 Interjection. (China, Hong Kong, Singapore, informal) ah; oh; an exclamation of exuberance, a shout of hurt, a cry of fear, an accusation of blame, the reflex of being startled and the embrace of joy.
Aiyaa encompasses the full spectrum of motherhood.
This semi-autobiographical show follows a mom in an IG world struggling to keep her sanity in the midst of opposing social and cultural values. Should you be a tiger, helicopter, crunchy, scrunchie mom or none of the above? And how do we keep up with the Joneses while keeping our head above water in our inherited sense of identity?
A physical and comedic show that takes raw and honest look at personal migrant heritage and the struggle to meet modern expectations of motherhood.
