A verbatim theatre project combining live performance, photography and film to share the experiences of three generations of British military children.
The inspiration for this project (apart from Naomi’s own background as an army brat) comes from a quote that states the official flower of the military child is a Dandelion because they travel all over the world, put down roots wherever they end up and are resilient.
What is it like to live in different countries, move house and school every 2-3 years, make and lose friends or be separated from a parent for an extended period of time? Do these military families see themselves as resilient or is this way of life just “normal?”
This project received funding from The Lowry as one of their Untitled Commissions for 2020.
