Into The Light

Daring physical theatre about the right to be seen and heard, performed by those we need to see and hear.

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.

A Hijinx and Teatro La Ribalta (Italy) production in association with Frantic Assembly, with Sherman Theatre and Danza Mobile (Spain).

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; Into The Light features an international cast of performers with and without learning disabilities.
