Sex, drugs, risk, adulthood, contagion, monsters.

A new in-theatre work inspired by the monstrosity of becoming.

The stage is full of people partying, with maybe 30 people, drinking, dancing, relaxing on the floor. You don’t know who is a performer and who is an audience member. Some audience members are looking quite awkward. Some are getting quite amorous. Some are dancing wildly.

Things enter into darker territory. A fight erupts and then everything is suddenly stark and bright – somebody turned the lights on. The audience members shuffle off to their seats.

We enter into a strange world… The world of SKIN.

SKIN is a vividly fantastical exploration of a complex phase in life: the transition into adulthood, exploring risk, danger, drugs, and sexuality.
