Forever Young

Where did that teenage idealism go? Those outrageous, brilliant, or just plain silly ideas you had of how the world could become a better place?

Go one-to-one with a reclining chair, a team of adolescent experts, and an outdoor foolhardy adventure. All there to probe the current pulse of your hopes and dreams, lost or found…

A teenage adventure for grown-ups.
A solo journey where you are never alone – always in the midst of a whirlwind of teen action, whirling you from place to place, throughout the city and through your memories, dreams, hopes and losses.

Part research, part rehabilitation and part playful tumble over our supposed wisdom, scars, cynicism and reckless dreaming. An encounter with your teenage self that you will never forget (no matter how hard you try).
