“Brave, honest and delightful…full of a rich sense of the joy of human difference” The Scotsman

 

Award-winning performance company Curious Seed visit Sadler’s Wells’ Lilian Baylis Studio with Chalk About, a family dance theatre show to delight children and adults alike on Saturday 1 & Sunday 2 November 2014.

 

Chalk About is a playful, funny and moving look at how we see ourselves and others. Join Christine Devaney and Hendrik Lebon on their journey as they find answers to some big questions about identity and the meaning of life. What makes us who we are? Is it where we are from? Is it the way we move, or how we talk? Our pasts or our futures? Or is it about the way we dance?

 

Curious Seed was founded in 2005 by performer and choreographer Christine Devaney. The vision of the company is to create engaging, thought provoking, uncompromising performance work with physical expression at its core. Since 2005, Curious Seed has produced the solo work Almost, But Not Quite for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (2005), Code Butterfly a large scale site-specific work for young women at Out of The Blue as part of the Leith Festival (2007).

Found (2009), was presented to great acclaim during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and went on to win a prestigious Scotsman Fringe First Award and a Total Theatre Award Nomination.
