Never before have parents been under such pressure when it comes to raising children. Is the pressure to get it right overwhelming us? And what is ‘good parenting’ anyway? Are children today given too much choice? Too few boundaries? Less chance to take risks?
Drawing inspiration from real-life interviews, award-winning director and choreographer Kate Champion explores contemporary attitudes to raising children in this provocative dance theatre work.
Using a distinctive language of dance, images and text, Force Majeure and Sydney Theatre Company have created an emotional, humorous and insightful work that cannot fail to resonate with all who were once children.
