Mãe com Açúcar is the portrait of the relationship between grandparents and grandsons, of the friendship that emerges from the generational distance, of wisdom and innocence, unconditional love and the traditions and stories passed on through speech. The text was been built from the gathering of experiences and events told by and from grandparents of the Centro de Dia – Obra Social Madre Maria Clara, and also from reports of other grandparents. A theater workshop was created for senior students, where technics and theatrical activities took place with the Centro de Dia Social Madre Maria Clara’s resident attendents.
