Performance & Dance

That Night Follows Day by Forced Entertainment

A chorus of children explore and interrogate the ways the adult world shapes and defines that of young people.

The comical and poignant text, created by Tim Etchells for a cast aged between 8 and 14, offers up the full range of advice, facts, white lies and excuses children hear from adults.

Funny and revealing, the performance looks at how we are all both made and constrained by language as we try to describe our experiences and imagine our futures.

Etchells' script is a masterpiece of precise observation and perfectly crafted musicality, moving subtly through love, amusement, anger, frustration and joy.
