Due to these unprecedented times, we have been working with Vincent Dance Theatre to bring you a very special online screening event of In Loco Parentis on Thursday 9th April at 7.30pm.
“You do grow up quicker in care. We know more than you guys. That ain’t my house. Even if I had to live there ‘till I was 18… that ain’t my house.” Young Person in Care, Sussex, 2019
By popular demand, Vincent Dance Theatre are returning with a powerfully brutal and honest examination of the care system. In Loco Parentis 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.
“Agonisingly visceral, and often beyond words… this is also a piece about love as an enduring source of hope.” The Psychologist
