The mother has already got up. The path needs to be resumed. The wheels of war start spinning. Right. Left. One more day. The son carries the home on his back. The feet do not think any more. The daughter, sitting, counts the arms and legs abandoned at the side of the path. We will do business today. What a wonderful war!


What a Wonderful War! is a gestural show based on Mother Courage, by Bertold Brecht, where the text of the dramatist has been substituted by corroded gestures and a primitive language, nearly animal, to show one out of the many disasters generated by war.
