“Tender Young Creatures melds elements of the Red Riding Hood story into a short (50 minutes), purposeful and well executed work of immersive theatre for all ages.”
Jason Blake - SMH
‘TENDER YOUNG CREATURES ultimately explodes with female energy.
By the time words like ‘sweat’, ‘claws’, ‘blood’ echo and a sudden, stunning percussion fills the space the audience is assured of the girls’ safety and future. With the settling of emotions and the return of logic, one can fully recognise what a rich, elegant and professional work this is.’
Judith Greenaway – Sydney Arts Guide
Tender Young Creatures is a live installation centred around the theme of young women walking at night. Inspired by the classic tale of Red Riding Hood, the performance is a contemporary look at the wolf which lives inside us.
In a highly visual and richly aural landscape, sixteen young female performers and singers reignite Red’s story and asks us to consider fear, the thing which we feed most.
A chorus of young voices cry out to the daughters of the world amidst a backdrop of moving images and projected animations. This is a work which offers young female voices a platform to be heard
