Charlotte's Song explores a daughter's reality of growing up with her schizophrenic mother and how that impacted her life. Through the lens of fragmented narratives, letters, movement sequences, and shifting auditory landscapes, we hear the language of disconnect that announces the underlying fragility of the mother; both her physical and mental collapse. The symbolic figure of a doll provides the emotional link between mother and daughter while the role of narrator shifts between the central characters.
