Donna Rutherford’s acclaimed production KIN comes to An Lanntair Arts Centre for one night only on Friday 10th February, after receiving outstanding reviews during a tour of UK venues last year.
KIN explores the fear, sorrow, anger, guilt and frustration – but also the love, trust and laughter to be found as middle-aged children negotiate the changes in their relationships with parents. In moving close-ups, performers reveal to camera concerns of their own ageing while dealing with their parent’s increasingly glacial pace of life.
Performers Tim Ingram (Reckless Sleepers), Richard Gregory (Quarantine), Cathy Naden and Claire Marshall (Forced Entertainment), along with actor Alison Peebles are linked during a live performance by Donna Rutherford.
As the passage of time speeds up, the future and its inevitable deteriorations get closer. Just as you become slower at everything you do, take longer to do the simplest things, you find yourself hurtling downhill with no brakes.
