Memories don’t forgive. Children don’t forget. Adults don’t grow up.
A show about black childhood. Returning, reconnecting, and journeying towards forgiveness so that you can find joy and do more than just survive.
Told through synths, hacked toys, looping, and poetry, Swallowing Your Idols brings the child, the teenager and the adult together in an apology owed to your past selves, to be accountable for who you have become and who you want to be.
Created and performed by live loop artist, Xana - Swallowing Your Idols is a visceral exploration into the experience of Aggressor, Protector, and Victim. Unpacking the spaces of comfort we create in order to choose to live each day.
Age Recommendation: 12+
