Remembering the past- imagining the future

The year they were born an unpronounceable volcano was erupting in Iceland.

Since then it's been an eventful nine years.

The Arab spring, Brexit, Minecraft, a climate emergency, Donald Trump, COVID-19.

But what do they remember and what was actually important to them?

Nine years old marks the middle point between being born and being and adult. It's an important age of remembering the past and imagining the future.

So what does the future look like to them? How will they look in the future? Will the world last? Will we ever return the 'old normal'? Do they think there will ever be a female pope? Will we eventually all start falling in love with robots?

When they turn 18 the year will be 2030. What will the world be like by then?

This new project from Bootworks Theatre Company is supported by GL4 & Strike A Light and will comprise of workshops and performances through 2021-2022. 

The project will strive to champion the voices, perspective and world-view of local young people

Date: 1st June - 4th June

What to expect

VR headsets, gold coats and a massive gantry are landing in Matson. Dance through outer space in the middle of the green on the estate! 👨‍🚀

Our Dancing Shadows explores two sides of the same experience, one in VR and the other watching on. It uses the latest VR technology to enable people to collaborate in the same virtual world at once, untethered and outside.

You can choose to watch the dancers and/or be a dancer yourself. If you choose to dance, you’ll take to the stage wearing a VR headset. You do not need to have experienced VR before in order to be a dancer, or have any experience of dance. It is not a competitive environment. If you choose to be a dancer in the VR experience you will find yourself guided through a gentle, poetic VR world.
