If not now then when? was an exciting site-specific promenade show inspired by Quentin Blake’s book ‘A Sailing Boat in the Sky’ and The United Nations Convention on the ‘Rights of the Child’.
Working with Keys Meadow Primary School’s Year 5 children we explored themes of child labour, warfare, poverty and climate change with a life sized boat travelling around the school, ‘saving’ children from scene-to-scene. The show culminated with an aerial performance in the hall with children suspended above the ground in cocoons – in a call to action for the rights of all children!
