ilYoung 2018 - Q&A
ilDance invited award winning British choreographer Rachel Erdos, to re-work her successful piece Question and Answers (Q&A) with the cast of ilYoung 2018. The piece was originally created with a cast of 4 established artists and was uniquely developed with the cast of 10 young artists (ilYoung) in Sweden.
ilYoung will present its orignal version of Q&A on tour across Sweden throughout August and September 2018.
Between a talk show and Sunday confession this work shares intimate moments from the performers’ lives and creates an event more like a sharing than a traditional performance.
The performance includes dance, theatre and live text. The performers interact with the audience members and take down the traditionally built wall between performers and audience.
Language: Swedish & English
Suitable for young and adult audiences (minimum 9 years old)*
*There is a moment in the work where strong language is used.
