It's estimated that the world's population will reach 10 billion by the year 2050. The number of children being born into the world outnumbers global deaths by three to one. The threat of over-population is repeated in countless news articles, yet many of us are still driven to have children. It's this drive that will be explored in Theatre Ad Infinitum's production: No Kids.
No Kids will be performed at the Salisbury Playhouse on Friday the 9th of February at 7:45pm. The show will be followed by a discussion with the show's cast and creatives looking at future projects for Theatre Ad Infinitum. For more information about other Theatre Ad Infinitum productions and projects, head to their website.
Real life-couple Nir Paldi and George Mann are both artistic directors of Theatre Ad Infinitum, a theatre company that uses physical theatre and experimental styles to explore social and political issues. No Kids uses the same Theatre Ad Infinitum style, as Nir Paldi and George Mann as themselves "as a gay couple, should we go out of our way to reproduce?"
The show uses a mixture of personal stories, physical theatre and cabaret to explore this serious question in an interesting and evocative way.
