Synopsis

This complex, funny and subversive new work asks us to imagine a woman who works with children, but has a secret she’s incredibly ashamed of. Now, imagine a man who works with children, but says and does things in private he wouldn’t want made public. Fortunately there are regulations in place to protect children from dark emotions and the vulnerability of reality.

Collaborating with Pol Heyvaert from internationally renowned Belgian company CAMPO, Nicola Gunn (Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster, Green Screen) uses her distinctive humour and fierce social critique to explore the moral and ethical minefield of working with children, and other social taboos.

An MTC NEON NEXT commission. Supported by “CAMPO”:http://www.campo.nu/en/about-campo.
