Becoming the Invisible Woman
A woman ‘awakens’ to find herself middle aged, stuck in a rut and confused – unsure of where she fits in, and feeling increasingly invisible and irrelevant in a youth-centric society. A chorus of matriarchs serve as both provocateurs and guides as they prompt her to re-assess her youth – decisions made and paths taken - in order to explore the potential and opportunities offered up by this next stage of life. Perhaps middle age is a time to challenge the paradigm and subvert expectation; a time to lean in to life, explore and take risks?
