'A complex journey through the terrain of modern day childhoods.
'A child enters the space and speaks directly to the adult audience in her native Swahili. She is vulnerable and competent, fearful and exuberant as she explains why we’re all here.
'I’m going to perform for you - you’re going to watch me.
'The protagonists in 'Joy Fear & Poetry' are children aged 8-12 who create, demonstrate and philosophise, sharing their perspectives on life and art in a playful integration of live performance, digital projection, video, animation and iPad play.' (Source: Laboite website)
