A MOTION AWAY, directed by acclaimed theatre director Paul Van Dyck (Oroonoko, Paradise Lost, The Harvester) is a look into the deep and repetitive cycles which are found in family relationships, particularly the strong, yet sometimes destructive, relationship between mother and daughter. With little more than a subtle pause, and a choice word, no other person knows just how to tear you apart as a mother does.
