This high-energy performance features real-life mother Lucy and her 15 -year-old son Raedie. Not much connects them anymore, but they both love the singer Sia. They love her music, her videos and her hair – especially when it moves in a choppy, black-on-platinum swivel. They decided to use the iconic motifs of this Australian pop superstar to make a show about their relationship.

So, hold on for dear life through this all-singing, all-dancing journey of rejection, nurture, transforming, hurting and becoming…

Note: Contains flashing lights and very loud music.
