Schools and families make the rules, they monitor and restrict – risks are assessed and lives protected as they do their best to keep young people safe.
‘Risk’ draws five stories from the voices and actions of a generation of these young people.
Personal safety is not at the top of their list. They are looking for excitement, even danger – ways to feel more alive.
Their stories burn with the intensity of risk-taking, captured on stage in an adrenalin rush of hip-hop, breakdance and street-dance.
‘Risk’ is about the decisions young people make as they walk the line between feeling alive and staying alive.
A macrobert production in association with Boundless Theatre, YDance and The Tron
