ChildIsh Title Image
Adults speak children’s exact words about love, life and the world in this fresh verbatim work. Drawn from interviews with over 40 whip-smart and brutally honest children, a dynamite adult cast allows an adult audience to hear kids’ ideas and experiences anew.

The results are surprising, hilarious and moving.
CHILD-ISH is a constellation of creative works: a web series, an upcoming podcast, a live performance and an inter-generational process.

After sold-out work-in-progress showings at the SummerWorks Festival (Canada, 2019), unfortunately, the trajectory towards the world premiere live production was postponed due to Covid. We look forward to bring CHILD-ish back on the stage when theatres re-open. As the work tours, local children will participate in part of the performance.
