Missa Mater Sola (literally: 'mass of the lonely mother; mass about only the mother') is a second theatrical mass by composer and theater maker Timo Tembuyser. After a first mass about 'the sinner', Missa Mater Sola focuses on the mother figure, flanked by a choir of six sons — six boys on their way to a mature voice. In the absence of the Father, the Goddess is sung together after millennia of women's oppression. In collaboration with dance legend Fumiyo Ikeda as the mother of the community of performers, the mother-son relationship is explored as a physical act of giving and receiving, of carrying and being carried. Missa Mater Sola is both a choral concert and a dance performance. Accompanied by a young flautist on the sidelines, we are working towards a new Stabat Mater Gloriosa: an ode to the power of the feminine, in each of us.
