Vincent Dance Theatre: In Loco Parentis Online

Critically acclaimed for translating real-life testimonies into beautifully crafted performance work, Vincent Dance Theatre’s In Loco Parentis sheds light on the extraordinary resilience of care-experienced young people, demanding that their stories be seen and heard.

Three adult and two extraordinary young performers combine movement, strong visual imagery and spoken word to explore the cycles of rupture and repair that drive children into care. The work exposes the emotional impact that foster care and adoption has on young people’s lives and reflects on everyone’s need to feel safe and to belong.

Founded in 1994 by Artistic Director Charlotte Vincent, Vincent Dance Theatre produce powerful and engaging dance theatre work on stage, on film and online, accompanied by extensive social engagement and professional development programmes.
