Teentalitarianism: Ask for the Moons

by Mammalian Diving Reflex / Darren O’Donnell

A social-specific performance that invites adults to enter a very different world where the tables are turned and the teens are in charge.

Returning to Freedom Festival following Haircuts by Children in 2017, Freedom favourites Mammalian Diving Reflex will work with a group of local teenagers to create a series of performances, events and interventions that will positively disrupt this year’s festival, creating teen-infused environments where the youth rule the roost.

Ask for the Moons

After having thoroughly explored Freedom Festival, the operatives of Teentalitarianism will present a list of demands for future collaboration, as Mikey Martins and Jenny Howard-Coombes from Freedom Festival and representatives from the wider city face off with the teens to negotiate the fine print.

Not content with best intentions, Ask For the Moons demands a piece of the coming aeon. A very big piece. Watch the future unfold before your very eyes.

This presentation of Teentalitarianism is made possible in part thanks to grants from the Canada Council for the Arts touring programs.
