LONE

A beautiful and delicate experience for adults – created by children

LONE is a thoughtful and gentle work where audiences experience aloneness and loneliness, while intersecting the ideas of childhood and adulthood. 
 
THE RABBLE have developed LONE in collaboration with eleven children between the ages of 8 and 11 to create a bespoke performance installation to be experienced by one audience member at a time.

The young performers have imagined a space designed to be inhabited alone –that audience members must navigate and perhaps catch a glimpse of their own childhood.

LONE is a collaboration with St Martins

 

Warnings This is work is created by children for adults. It is a one-on-one installation that is designed to be experienced alone. Children under the age of 14 are not permitted to enter the theatre. This work has haze and strobe lighting.
