Loudmouth: A Devised Work
"Loudmouth" explores how to empower children to speak up and have confidence in their own voices. What is the dynamic between morally complex adults and children who have an intuitive moral sense? What is the importance of honesty vs. recognition of authority? What can compel shy or self doubting childen to find value in their voices, both literal and creative?
This show will be devised throughout the summer of 2017 using techniques focused on movement and interhuman relationships. The final production will be presented this November in NYC.
"Loudmouth" is being developed and co-directed by Suzannah Gratz and Rebel Playhouse Executive Director Clara Kundin. Be sure to join our mailing list to stay in the loop as this incredible piece develops!
