Online film screening of performance
Critically acclaimed for translating real-life testimonies into beautifully crafted performance work, Vincent's In Loco Parentis sheds light on the extraordinary resilience of care-experienced young people, demanding that their stories be seen and heard.
Three adult and two extraordinary young performers combine movement, strong visual imagery and spoken word to explore the cycles of rupture and repair that drive children into care. The work exposes the emotional impact that foster care and adoption has on young people's lives and reflects on everyone's need to feel safe and to belong.
Tickets are free, however booking is required.

A live online post show discussion with Charlotte Vincent will take place following the screening. Details to be announced.
