Mammalian Diving Reflex / Darren O’Donnell
Conceived by Darren O'Donnell
Directed by Jana Eiting, Annalise Prodor, Feroz Syed, Kathy Vuu
Produced by Eva Verity, Tina Fance
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.
This presentation of Teentalitarianism has been made possible in part thanks to grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.
Sex, Drugs and Criminality :
The young operatives of ‘Teentalitarianism’ collide together with the most famous and courageous artists in the world. The teens are invited to ask the artists any questions they want; the artists are invited to refuse any questions they want. A very very very frank discussion about three of the most confusing topics in the universe: sex, drugs and criminality.
Warning: mature themes and audience participation...
