Into The Light
A Hijinx and Teatro La Ribalta (Italy) production in association with Frantic Assembly, with Sherman Theatre and Danza Mobile.
We all seek interaction, connection and validation. The light before us promises us all this and more. The glow of our mobile phones invites us to be appreciated, cherished and loved. The challenge of stepping out on stage offers us something similar.
As the performers emerge from the darkness and into the light, are they illuminated or are they exposed? Do we dare step into the light? Are we merely moths to its flame?
Directed by Frantic Assembly’s Scott Graham & Krista Vuori and incorporating an international cast of performers with and without learning disabilities, Hijinx & Teatro La Ribalta’s Into the Light is daring physical theatre about the right to be seen and heard, performed by those we need to see and hear.
