Featuring young performers from local schools.
Teentalitarianism is a series of “social-specific” performances that invites an adult audience to enter a very different world, a world where the tables are turned, and the teens are in charge. Mammalian Diving Reflex will work with a group of local teenagers to create a series of performances, events and interventions that will take over an area of Salford, creating a teen-infused environment where the youth rule the roost.
More information on the specific events below. We are delighted to announce that there will be an allocation of free tickets for Under 19s for all performances.
Nightwalks with Teenagers:
Created with local youth, who plan, design and lead public walks through the city at night, exploring the neighbourhood with members of the community. ‘Nightwalks’ is focused on the power of walking together, bringing together teens and adults to have a unique social experience related to a shared place and time, where everyone can let loose, and silences offer moments for contemplation.
Darren O'Donnell ‘s new book: Haircuts by Children and Other Evidence for a New Social Contract will be available to buy online soon! Find out more here
