Between dance and physical theatre, Peeping Tom’s shows astonish audiences with surreal, unsettling imagery and phenomenal choreography that defies logic. Child (Kind)
explores perceptions of childhood.
An eerie forest of towering trees and menacing cliffs reveals grotesque, curious and disturbing scenes that hold within them the fears, doubts and dreams of a girl caught up in toxic and traumatic situations. Uncannily conveying the body language of the young while swirling around the borders of reality, Child (Kind)
features a mezzo-soprano as a child and seemingly elastic dancers who emerge imaginatively from the scenery.
The Olivier Award-winning Belgian group follows productions of Mother
with the final part of its family-themed trilogy. Developed from impressions of childhood shared by the whole company including co-directors Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier, the last instalment comes out of their fascination with the human psyche and the construction of identity.
