Here’s some back ground on the creative minds behind the show that explores what it’s like to grow up in care. What happens to young people when their parents can’t look after them?

With this socially engaged work, artistic director, Charlotte Vincent combines movement, strong visual imagery and spoken word to investigate cycles of childhood trauma, rupture and repair.

Critically acclaimed for translating real- life testimonies into beautifully crafted performance work, Vincent illuminates the inner-worlds of care-experienced young people to demonstrate their extraordinary resilience in a production that is demanding their stories be heard.

To turn on SUBTITLES for the video look for the cog wheel icon at bottom right of screen and choose the language for the text and testimony part of this work.
