Mödrars tårar

The theater performance De kommer att drunkna i sina mödrars tårar (They Will Drown in Their Mothers Tears) is a science fiction thriller about hope and hopelessness in today’s Europe, about friendship and betrayal, and about the theater of terror
and fascism. 

The publication and visual identity intends to reflect a spectrum through color and form, through complexity, transitions and parallel worlds. Poetry runs throughout the publication, designed in different fonts by type-designers with roots in parts of the world which is not dominated by whiteness. A visual interpretation of an amazing theatrical performance – directed by Farnaz Arbabi, after a book by Johannes Anyuru.
A collaboration between Unga Klara and Uppsala stadsteater.

The publication was awarded for Swedish Book Award (Svensk bokkonst).
