Description

In near-future England, two girls are thrilled to be accepted into the playground, the final stage of their education, but all is not as it seems. As their world crumbles, they cling to a story from the past: two friends in 1930s Germany attend riotous swing dances in defiance of authority. Forced into Hitler Youth, one becomes swept up in propaganda whilst the other cannot abandon their ideals. The talented young cast mix naturalistic storytelling, dance and physical theatre to intertwine these poignant stories, showing both the devastation and hope that youth can wield.

Dance and physical theatre are an integral part of this performance, ranging from the energetic swing dancing to the automaton-like movements of the Hitler Youth which are echoed in the movements of the girls of The Academy. The talented young cast show great maturity in dealing with the emotive subject matter of this play, which raises many issues which are as relevant today as they were in 1930s Germany.
