A girl is locked in a room. A boy brings another boy flowers. A girl has tied herself to a railing. A girl doesn’t know who she is. A girl worries about impending catastrophe. A butterfly has a broken wing.
Chaos is a symphony of dislocated and interconnected scenes. Bouncing through physics, the cosmos, love and violence, the characters find order in the disorder of each other.
There is great power in deciding what stories to tell, how to tell them and by whom, so in staging ‘Chaos’ we have placed our company of Y10 girls at the heart of the decision-making process: the set design is theirs, as is the lighting and sound; costume design has come from their imagination and key interpretations of the script have been their choices.
