The performance deals with the critical voice inside your own mind. That annoying one that doesn’t seem to go away no matter how hard you try. Questioning who is the voice inside your head and are you listening? It’s also about my mother but that’s a long story so we can save that for later.
A solo piece using text, movement and audio with gentle audience participation.
Followed by a post-performance discussion
