About Mother Courage and Her Children
Khiali Sabri's 'Mother Courage and Her Children' is an adaptation of one of nine plays that Brecht wrote in an attempt to counter the rise of Fascism and Nazism. In response to the invasion of Poland by the German armies of Adolf Hitler in 1939, Brecht wrote 'Mother Courage' in what writers call a "white heat" - in a little over a month. Puppetry, ingenious set design, and inventive costume all feature in this Iranian take on a Brechtian anti-war perspective. Fatemeh Motamed Ariya was nominated for the best actress award at the 32nd International Fajr Theater Festival.
