This event has passed.

Critically acclaimed for translating real-life testimonies into beautifully crafted performance work, Vincent’s In Loco Parentis sheds light on the extraordinary resilience of care-experienced young people, demanding that their stories be seen and heard.

Three adult and two extraordinary young performers combine movement, strong visual imagery and spoken word to explore the cycles of rupture and repair that drive children into care. The work exposes the emotional impact that foster care and adoption has on young people’s lives and reflects on everyone’s need to feel safe and to belong.

In Loco Parentis Online was captured at Connaught Theatre, Worthing on 3 March 2020. The work contains content and explores themes that some people may find upsetting. If you are affected by the themes, need support or know someone who may need support, please click here for a list helplines.

‘’Still thinking about Vincent Dance Theatre In Loco Parentis – a brutal, disturbing, raw window into the world of foster care. Well done to the company for being bold enough to create it and to Barnsley Civic for being brave enough to programme it.’’
