In Loco Parentis by Vincent Dance Theatre
“Vitally important social messages way beyond the parameters of theatre and dance” DanceTabs
Critically acclaimed for translating real-life testimonies into beautifully crafted performance work, Vincent’s In Loco Parentis sheds light on the extraordinary resilience of care-experienced young people, demanding that their stories be seen and heard.
Three adult and two extraordinary young performers combine movement, strong visual imagery and spoken word to explore the cycles of rupture and repair that drive children into care. The work exposes the emotional impact that foster care and adoption has on young people’s lives and reflects on everyone’s need to feel safe and to belong.
Suitable for ages 14+

"Subverting all my expectations of narrative, dance, theatre, 'In Loco Parentis' kept me on the edge of my emotional seat. A powerful, respectful exposition of developmental trauma and its physical and emotional consequences. Dance was exactly the right choice. I was in tears." Audience member
