Performance reflects Midland childrens’ thoughts

A PERTH-based performance group is heading to Midland next month with a show to encourage local children to reflect on the world around them.

The group Whiskey & Boots will present the performance The Quadrangle, a show they have been developing during their residency at the Midland Junction Arts Centre since mid-December.

The performers Mark Storen, Georgia King, Holly Garvey and Tom Garvey asked children aged 6 to 16 the same set of questions prompting them to contemplate who they are and their surroundings.

“In our experience working with young people, they are often told what to think,” Ms King said.

The Quadrangle is an opportunity for them to tell us what they think, feel and wonder about the world they live in.”

Whiskey & Boots create verbatim performances where they recite recorded stories as they listen to them through headphones.

The children’s answers will be presented verbatim and accompanied by live music composed in response to their ideas and stories.

The Quadrangle will be at Midland Junction Arts Centre from February 10 to 13, tickets are available at midlandjunctionartscentre.com.au
