During the time of the accident and diagnosis, her daughter Jen is still a teenager and finds her life changes overnight- how do they navigate the challenges and their changing roles?

A pre-recorded interview soundtrack explores the sacrifices each had to make- the switching of roles and the learning that comes with the diagnosis, as well as navigating the support available to them.

Dancers will perform scenes that portray life before and after the diagnosis. Dancers will move to pre-recorded interview voice track in a studio, while projections of scene locations etc will play behind/ on them to give further context.

Like her mum, she is strong-willed and always looking out for those around her. She recounts her youth, going to performing arts school, being driven to auditions by her mum. She speaks about how she is still realising these dreams today and how they changed through her sacrifices she had to make for her mum.

Dancer required to play Liz before/ after her accident to the present day, now in her 60s. Before her diagnosis, she was a busy, self-sacrificing mother that never stopped, so that she could give her daughter a better life than she had. She worked endlessly to be able to send her daughter to performing arts school. She could always be relied upon physically from looking after Jen to helping those in her community. This all changes soon after her accident, when teenage Jen steps in as her carer.
