Errənt presents a brand new physical theatre performance for children, which brings to life a charismatic story about two friends. After finding what seems to be just a plain old tutu, they embark on a fantastic journey of discovery and friendship. Choreographed by Vinicius Salles and performed by Errant’s multi-talented dancers, this original story celebrates acceptance of all gender identities.
Tutu Trouble will inspire everyone’s imagination. With insightful humour and an acute observation of social issues, combining physical theatre, quirky characterisation, text and dance, Tutu Trouble will take audiences on a wonderful journey of discovery to empower the next generation of children, giving them permission to be themselves, unapologetically.
The project is beeing produced by 1DegreeEast, and is in its final stages, preceding a full production and tour. This project will allow Errənt and Vinicius to develop partnerships and networks, targeting young audiences.
Tutu Trouble has a full version for theatres as well as a 25-minute outdoor performance – 'Petit Tutu' – so it can travel to a variety of different spaces with its bespoke set, allowing maximum reach to as many audience members as possible.
Errənt feels compelled to touch on themes that challenge the social structures and its regulators. Inspired by the Stonewall school report of 2017, which said sex education was extremely limited when providing LGBTQ+-related information, this project aims to offer to schools and general audiences an approach towards celebrating difference and encouraging inclusivity. Tutu Trouble is a positive family story that celebrates diverse gender identities within a fun environment, for children of all ages.
