About HOLD TIGHT
Meticulously detailed, working across generations, it’s more than dance. Charlotte is shouting in the spaces that matter
Judith Mackrell, Guardian
Home is a condition, a feeling, a sense of connection. Home is where our story begins…
Hold Tight explores the impact of separation on family relationships and how abrupt change and adverse childhood experiences impact on young people, their behaviour and their sense of identity, especially children taken into care. With two teenagers and four adults on stage and testimonies from care-experienced young people embedded in the work, Vincent Dance Theatre’s production explores home, family and belonging and considers how, when we long for intimacy and connection, sometimes we just have to Hold Tight.
Hold Tight is directed and designed by Charlotte Vincent.
Vincent Dance Theatre is a National Portfolio Organisation, funded by Arts Council England. VDT is Associate Company at Brighton Dome. Hold Tight is supported by South East Dance.
