When I Was 8 Years Old


When I was 8 years old (2017) in When I was 8, Year 1 Performing Arts students and Amalia Garcia collaborated for ten weeks with the aim of exploring and challenging the boundaries between Theatre and Dance. The piece explores our eight year old self; we defied the logical continuous narrative and created a series of moments that coexist in the space just because they do. We want to talk about people using physicality, images and metaphors, creating a dream like world.
