We Are The Monsters is a humorous dance performance aimed at children aged from 4-8 that can be enjoyed by all. In We Are The Monsters Colette mixes the familiar with the unfamiliar and strangeness with everyday life so that things we know and recognise take on new meanings and a life of their own.
Presented as part of the Family Arts Festivall which runs for the month of October.
“Sadler has an interest in monstrous form and transformation and her work finds ways of creating imagined bodies and their means of moving. And boy has she achieved her aim in this brilliant piece of absurdist abandon! This is how children play…Don’t let any children in your life miss this astonishing 35 minutes of undiluted madness!”
Irene Brown, Edinburgh Guide, August 2015.
