A real-life mother and teenage son put themselves on the line and on stage in this unflinchingly honest high-energy performance about their turbulent relationship.

Not much connects mother Lucy and 16-year-old son Raedie, except their adoration of 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.

Their show features iconic motifs of the Australian pop superstar, particularly the blonde wig she wears to obscure her face for privacy.

With a powerful film backdrop to their challenging show, this mother and son use dance, song and monologue to take audiences on a wildly emotional ride.

Made by Scotland’s live arts organisation 21Common, this “ballad” explores the themes of rejection, nurture, transforming, hurting and becoming.
