Chalk About, is a playful, funny and sometimes moving look at how we see ourselves and others, featuring dance, chat and one perfect scene containing everything you could wish for…

 

Join Christine and Hendrik 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?

 

“Some of the most brilliantly imaginative, humorous, touching theatre I have seen this year”

The Times ★★★★★

 

“Warm, funny, moving and with wonderful choreography. We couldn’t have asked for anything more” 

Tony Reekie, Festival Director, Imaginate

 

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

The Scotsman

 

“Utterly engaging” 

The Herald

 

Suitable for 8+ and families
Running time: approximately 50 minutes (no interval)
