Of Babies and Men
SCD’s new work for babies aged 4-18 months will enter a creative development phase in late 2023/early 2024.
Of Babies and Men will explore what happens in a playful performance space created by four skilled performers - Stephen Noonan, Owen Love, Jonathan Dragt and James Alberts.
A combination of care and play is a fundamental aspect of SCD’s philosophy of carefully creating encounters between artists and babies. As Fletcher-Watson notes “playing is key to the entire genre of Theatre for Early Years” (2016). Of Babies and Men will draw on types of play from competitive to imaginative ways of playing, making them visible to the babies through the performance images and available to them to take part in as co-players.
