An interactive performance for 5 people at a time.

Audience-participants are invited to join Daniel and Frauke in a series of awkwardly intimate and strange actions, rituals, dances, games, and other dysfunctional activities brought back in time from a post-neurodivergent revolution family fun-time future. 

Daniel is dyspraxic and is too slow. Frauke has ADHD and is too quick. They are married and have kids. This interactive performance is rooted in their experiences of their bodies as neurodivergent lovers, parents, and weirdo performance makers. It is a space in which clunky experiences of bodies and actions can be discussed, explored and ultimately celebrated through ritualisation and play. 

About Frauke Requardt and Daniel Oliver

Daniel and Frauke are neurodivergent performance practitioners. Daniel is a dyspraxic Live Artist. Frauke has ADHD and works in contemporary dance. They are married and have kids. Daniel makes unashamedly dyspraxic, awkward participatory, farcical fantasy worlds. His performances foreground an awkward relationship with co-ordination, social interaction and planning. Frauke has been making dark, surrealist dance works since finishing her MA in Choreography at The Place in 2003 where she is an associate artist. She also co-directs with experimental theatre-maker David Rosenberg under Requardt & Rosenberg, taking an architectural constraint as the starting point for mainly large-scale outdoor performances.

You will be given the opportunity to book a time with the TF Team for this piece when you arrive on the day from 12noon.
