Description

In the centre of a busy city is a garden utopia. A small safe haven from missed connections and digital overload. A place to clear your thoughts, relax your mind and meet with those you’ve missed. The British Army have no record of how many forces children there are in the UK. A study found that 98% of forces children could not answer the question, ‘Where is home?’. Dandelion explores separation anxiety through autonomous sensory meridian response and immersive techniques to ask why in a digitally connected world we are more anxious than ever? Note: Experienced through headsets.

Broadway Baby (5/5 stars) 37 days ago

One of the most moving immersive theatre productions I have yet to experience.

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 37 days ago

Through illustrative mime and physical theatre in response to the actors’ own pre-recorded speech, and Lisa’s nervy, live on-mic interventions, the audience feels what life as a perpetually moving army child might be like.

The Arts Desk (4/5 stars) 37 days ago

Effective alternation between recorded voices and the immediacy of live acting, all beautifully crafted and considered.
