Working with Children

Choreography: Nicola Gunn

Choreographer Nicola Gunn often uses subversive, humorous, choreographic and philosophical tactics to come at things from a moral and ethical standpoint. Her project Working with Children is a joyful and comic choreographic essay about shame, the risk of exposure and the ethics of working with children. Against a projected text that sits behind and above the children’s heads as a flow of continuous surtitles, a group of 12-year-olds are led through a series of rehearsal exercises, creating choreography live in front of the audience.
