Vincent ‘explores the visceral emotional labour involved in surviving – and creating – home.’  – The Psychologist, In Loco Parentis 

Hold Tight (14+)
Directed & Designed by Charlotte Vincent
Composed by Jules Maxwell

Home is where our story begins. It’s not always a place – it’s a condition, a feeling, a sense of connection. It shapes who we are. Hold Tight explores how adverse childhood experience, abrupt change and separation impact on young people’s lives.

With four adults and three young people on stage, accompanied by testimonies from care-experienced teenagers in the UK and folk songs recorded with Ukrainian refugees in Poland, VDT’s production reflects on home, family and belonging and how, when we long for intimacy and connection, sometimes we just have to Hold Tight.


VDT is a National Portfolio Organisation, funded by Arts Council England. Hold Tight is supported by South East Dance.
