Presented by Arts House


8 – 17 June, 2018

Created by an ensemble of children, LONE offers glimpses into their privately constructed worlds. A series of short fictions presented within live dioramas, LONE places safety, privacy, authority and the adult gaze under thoughtful investigation.

LONE’s young artists create a hidden chamber – a room where they can conduct a performance of their own making, beyond the sovereignty of adults. Looking in from the outside, audiences are privy to these worlds of passionate dreams, vivid imagery and dark secrets.

As adults, how do we see our own childhoods? What is it about childhood that we want to protect? LONE explores interior places, time alone, and the effect of secrets on the body. Looking in, we’re invited to recall our own experiences of childhood, our own loneliness and secrets, in a unique experience that is both distanced and intimate.
