A violin brushes past you. A guitar strums against your back. A trumpet sounds above your head. A loop machine distorts what you’ve just heard then plays it back to you... Performers twist and tumble through Caliper Boy’s whirlwind, life-long search for the answer to the question “Why aren’t I like the other children mother?”.
Created through devising in a variety of disused buildings, Caliper Boy is an immersive and visceral theatrical experience; alive with the tension of a fraught urban landscape.
Calliper Boy premiered at Camden People’s Theatre.
