GRACE UNDER PRESSURE

'Why don't we live in a village of women?'

 

The premise of ‘Grace’ started with a half joke I heard next to swing sets.  What would happen if a group of Northern Beaches mums at breaking point, decided to ditch their spouses and create a ‘mummume’? They’d live together and share the load. But would life in this utopian village really be all it’s cracked up to be?

 

'Grace Under Pressure' is about the pressure to ‘do it all’ and the strain of no longer living with a village of support. It’s about the weight of unpaid labour, post-natal anxiety, social media scrutiny and our culture of digital surveillance. It’s about mums’ facebook groups, kale smoothies and community. How the most important job we’ll potentially have, comes with the least amount of financial agency. It’s about what motherhood gives us – and what it takes from us. But mostly, it’s about the saving grace of female friendship.
