Crazy But True (8+)
Children have an insatiable hunger for unusual facts and trivia of the ‘crazy but true’ type. In the performance, children between the ages of eight and eleven form a panel of experts. A text is whispered to them via headsets. They repeat what they hear, and thus present a growing list of extraordinary facts. It is a tender, intergenerational confrontation involving tragic ánd comic extremes.
