NEVER DID ME ANY HARM
In a time when the act of raising children is scrutinised more than ever before, we seem to be paralysed by an excess of knowledge and self-awareness. Will we repeat our parents’ mistakes? Are our children too coddled? Do we give them too much freedom? Will they truly make us happy?
From an exciting first-time collaboration between Force Majeure's Kate Champion and Sydney Theatre Company ?comes a riveting dissection of what it means to be a parent in today’s Australia. Featuring a mixed cast of actors and dancers, Never Did Me Any Harm is a powerful melding of theatre and movement, a compelling work that speaks to our everyday anxieties and concerns.
On a stage recreating that most familiar of locales, a suburban Australian backyard, seven performers transition from parent to child and back again in a series of challenging vignettes incorporating monologues and playful dance interludes, woven through with inspired digital projection work and audio of real-life interviews with parents and children.
A captivating work that has attracted rave reviews with its power, poignancy and distinctively Australian humour, Never Did Me Any Harm is a lovingly crafted gem from one of our nation’s most compelling and innovative dance theatre companies.
