The brain between the ages of 7 and 12 years: we develop abstract thinking skills and begin to try to understand our position in the world. Our sense of justice becomes stronger and we become more curious about everything around us.

Filtered  looks specifically at all the questions we’ve ever wanted answered during the ages 7 – 12 years:

How did time start? How many leaves are on the trees on earth? Who thought that blue was meant for boys and pink for girls? Are monsters real? What do our pets do while were gone? Why are some ways to sit more comfy? Why is my teacher so cranky? Why do we have to be entertained? Why do I like eating weet-bix? How many people starve everyday? Why were we given hearts? What happens when we die? Why cant boys wear dresses? Can you come back from the dead? Who makes the rules? Why is it easier to make friends in kindy? Why is my favourite colour yellow? Why am I no good at maths? Why do I put my right shoe on before my left? Why do I exist?

 Adults don’t always give us clear answers to these questions and often the information is filtered before it’s given to us and we have to work things out ourselves. This work will explore the answers 7 – 12 year olds have worked out to these questions and many more.

Not only will words be used to tell this story, our guest artist Pablo Latona, a Canberra based physical theatre performer, will help our cast develop some fantastic new ways to perform ideas through circus techniques such as balancing, juggling and physical support. It will also explore three dimensional design – using structures in space made of everyday objects that the cast will interact with.

Filtered will be devised by the cast and co-directors, with support from Pablo Latona.
