Equinox Youth Theatre, one of Half Moon’s inclusive groups for young people aged 8-11, focused on the stories of belonging that the company has told through productions and participatory projects.
They used as their stimulus:
Members of Equinox delved into their four stimulus productions and found themselves traversing celestial plains, playing hopscotch with ghosts and losing their way in the dark. Will their ties to each other and to the theatre be strong enough to pull them back into the light? They have excelled at bringing an abundance of ideas and narrative to their devised piece. They have transferred the story to movement, transformed feelings into words and changed the past into the present. Follow them as they separate and congregate in their own phase of the moon.
