Description

What happens when you ask a group of 9 & 10 year olds to create an installation for adults? In October 2014, Dance Umbrella and the Unicorn Theatre will present three award-winning and international dance works for ages 8-12. On two of the performance dates, adults will not be allowed into the auditorium to watch the show. We asked a group of 9&10 year old pupils at Comber Grove Primary School to create an interactive installation for the adults who are left behind whilst their children watch the show. This film is a behind the scenes look into that process... The brief was to make adults think about how it feels to be aged around 9 or 10, when you start to become independent from your parents and when you start to do things by yourself. The children worked with a dance artist to explore these ideas through dance, choreography, discussion and writing.
