Vincent Dance Theatre in association with Worthing Theatres
In Loco Parentis
What happens to young people when their parents can’t look after them? In Loco Parentis explores what it’s like to grow up in care.
“You do grow up quicker in care. We know more than you guys. That ain’t my house. Even if I had to live there ’til I was 18… that ain’t my house”. Young Person in Care, Sussex 2019.
Vincent Dance Theatre’s latest insightful and hard-hitting performance In Loco Parentis, combines movement, strong visual imagery and spoken word.
Critically acclaimed for translating real-life testimonies into beautifully crafted performance work, VDT’s hard-hitting and insightful new production combines movement, strong visual imagery and spoken word to shed light on the extraordinary resilience of care-experienced young people, reflecting on everyone’s need to be safe, to feel looked after and to belong.
“Agonisingly visceral, and often beyond words… this is also a piece about love as an enduring source of hope”. The Psychologist, on VDT Art of Attachment (In Loco Parentis companion piece)
“What gives Vincent’s work its power is that it is born not of hot-housed theory but of lived experience. It comes from the heart and that’s not always a pretty place.” The Observer
“You do grow up quicker in care. We know more than you guys. That ain’t my house. Even if I had to live there ’til I was 18… that ain’t my house”. Young Person in Care, Sussex 2019
