"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 ‘til I was 18… that ain’t my house." - Young person in care, 2019

Vincent Dance Theatre are critically acclaimed for translating real-life testimonies into beautifully crafted performance work. Their insightful new production illuminates the extraordinary strength, resilience and inner worlds of care-experienced children, their parents and carers. Reflecting on a universal human need to be looked after, to be safe and to belong the production demands that their stories be heard.

"What gives Vincent’s work its power is that it is born not of hot-housed theory but of lived experience. It comes from the heart and that’s not always a pretty place." -  The Observer


Age Recommendation: 14+
