You were very scared to go into year 7 and it ruined the summer holidays. And before you knew it, it was your first day and you weren’t scared anymore. That’s when the real problems started. There are a lot of people in year 7. That’s a lot of potential friends and foes. More importantly, it’s important to forge a good reputation. And then they tell you a girl in the class likes you. What now?
Why do we both need to reply my secret message? Because it's a secret message. The others need to know the answer.
Whether its audience is made up of adults or children, the plays of the Kairos company are hybrid and highly varied. Texts, music, songs and movement, all interact equally. David Lescot's words capture the questions that move us as a society, that place people in the most extreme situations. In this style of theatre, where text, music and movement intermingle, it's essential to close as closely with reality, to observe it, even if it means distorting it slightly to see it better.
