Performed by: Checkpoint Theatre
Mother-daughter relationships are always complex. Their echoes spread across generations. How does time bring a new perspective to the way we relate to our parents? A vivid, affecting portrait of the ties between mothers and daughters, Recalling Mother: Her Lines, My Lines invites you to re-examine this special connection with tenderness, compassion, and empathy.
Immensely moving and funny, Checkpoint Theatre's Recalling Mother: Her Lines, My Lines celebrates the joys, trials and intricacies of mother-daughter relationships. A living work that has seen many successive versions, the piece has resonated deeply with global audiences in Singapore, New York, Brisbane and Adelaide since it began its journey in 2006.
Now, in 2022, the conversations evolve further, with changing times, bodies, and relationships creating new bonds and stories. Dynamics shift, love and care become inextricable. Daughters find themselves renegotiating their roles as they grow up and grow old with their parents.
Shared with verve, generosity and wit, acclaimed theatremakers and friends Claire Wong and Noorlinah Mohamed open an intimate, safe space for all to listen to their stories and recall mother in their own way.
