About the work:
Faster will explore the speed at which our lives begin moving as we move through
adolescence. It will investigate much of what happens to us biologically that is outside of our
control and the consequences of that. Extreme feelings of anger and loneliness, intense love
and happiness, along with greater independence in decision making that our brains may not
actually be equipped to do.
Faster will employ live painting within the performance to enhance the delivery of the
experience felt as the teenage brain releases hormones, trims synapses and grows its
frontal lobe. This work will be devised by the co-directors and cast of 13 – 18 year olds.
