Mother Load is an uplifting choreographic work reflecting on relationships between parent and child. In part one, 'Performance with Hope', Grace and her 10-year old daughter share the stage, making decisions together. Grace tries her best to raise a woman in front of you. Part two, 'Things Stack Up', is a solo performance, using the subject of education to explore notions of play, agency, risk and physicality. Based in Yorkshire, Grace works across performance, live art, theatre and choreography. In Mother Load, she invites you to question her as an artist, a woman and a mother. Commissioned by Yorkshire Dance Amplified and supported by Transform Festival. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
