A Tramway Co-commission as Part of Take Me Somewhere
In a room of questionable hygiene; in the dark of a fairy dell; in the tinkling omnipresence of ice cream and the alluring uncovered well...
This performance is a place where children’s lives are unbounded by constant adult surveillance and all dominant generational power relations are destroyed. Do you dare to join us in our new world order?
'In the Interest of...' is a deranged disco, showboating the consequences of society’s reluctance to let their children take risks. Featuring some very special dancers and some very loud music, be prepared to come on in and raise merry hell. Are we living the dream or embodying the nightmare?
Recommended for ages 14+
