Autin Dance Theatre return to Article19 with their new work ‘A Positive Life’ created by French, UK based dance maker Johnny Autin. The work is an interactive piece that looks at, among other things, issues surrounding sexual health.
‘A Positive Life’ doesn’t take place in traditional theatre venues instead the audience mingle among the performers and the work happens around them.
The company say this much;
“A Positive Life is an immersive theatre experience inspired by the interpersonal stories of five characters around sex, love and relationships. Featuring dance, physical theatre and spoken word, the original scenography of the piece and the elements of audience interactions will move you and transport you to the heart of the story. The piece runs for 50 minutes and is aimed at young people (11-24) with an uplifting and engaging message on self-love, sexual health topics and sex ed’ stories.”
“We believe effective sex and relationship education is essential if young people are to make responsible and well informed decisions about their lives. A Positive Life is an original accessible performance that engages with young audiences about issues and stories in a safe environment.”
The work is performed by Becca Thomas (Rehearsal Director), Michael Kelland, Katie Albon, Johnny Autin and Jasmine Gardosi and was performed at The mac in Birmingham on June 27th, 2017.
