The Kids Are Alright
The Kids Are Alright is a surreal and confronting new work combining dance and new writing, participation and performance, children and adults.
When a day trip to the Natural History Museum turns to tragedy, one family is left as hollow as the cold bones of the blue whale. At home, they attempt to make sense of the unimaginable in ways as unpredictable as the incident itself.
At the same time, with sound protective headphones and in an auditory world of their own, children storm the stage.
Smashing two restricted worlds into one radical show, adults attempt to come to terms with their lives spinning out of control while children embark on a journey of hope.
In their unique, experimental style, Encounter shed light on the state that we are in and ask what happens when two worlds converge on one stage.
