BREAKING THE FALL
As part of #MakeDoandMend with #StellarQuines and #BOPTheatre, this blog documents an exciting new collaboration with my mum: #BreakingtheFall brings together mother and daughter in the creative exploration of the impact of a child’s chronic illness on motherhood. In this project, experiences of epilepsy will be explored from the perspective of both mother and daughter, focusing upon issues of control. We will use our creative practices to investigate how epilepsy has entangled our lives, bringing great closeness and love in some cases, but also tensions and concern in others. These themes will be visualised in the design of wearable sculptures and experimental movement sequences.
