Lucy and Raedie are Mother and Son. They both REALLY love the singer Sia. They love her music, her videos and especially her hair. They love the way it moves in a choppy, black-on-platinum swivel.
They decided to use the iconic motifs of this Australian pop superstar to make their own performance. Somehow Sia became the catalyst in examining this relationship between a 14-year-old son and his 37-year-old mother, between a legally identified adult and child, Woman and Boy, and two artists creating and sharing something.
This high-energy performance exposes the inherent narcissism that is at the centre of motherhood and how this becomes a burden to the child embarking on adulthood. It shares something of Lucy and Raedie, past and present. It discovers their new dynamic.
So hold on for dear life through this all singing, all dancing journey of rejection and nurture, disappointment and interdependency, of transforming, growing, hurting and becoming…
