Curious Seed, Scotland

Chalk About

by Christine Devaney and Leandro Kees

Chalk About is a playful, funny and moving look at how we see ourselves and others, featuring dance, chalk, chat and one perfect scene containing everything you could wish for! Turning the stage into a gigantic chalkboard, it explores the nature of identity and asks some BIG questions: What makes us who we are? Is it where we are from? How we talk? Our pasts or our futures? Or is it just the way we dance?

‘Uplifting and thought provoking, this is a show that will stay with me... a 5 star show, see it if you can!' -Primary Times ★★★★★

‘Brave, honest and delightful… full of a rich sense of the joy of human difference’ -The Scotsman ★★★★
