Tim Etchells on That Night Follows Day

That Night Follows Day by Tim Etchells and Forced Entertainment takes a closer look at the facts, white lies and excuses adults tell children. Performed by children, for adults, the performance invites us to take a playful look at the way we project our world onto those around us. With remarkable clarity and humour, the cast of eight to 14 year olds reveal the ways we are all constrained and created by the words we hear.

In this short video we see rehearsal footage of the young performers, who brought Etchells’ text to life here at Southbank Centre in December, 2018, and the writer and director himself explains how the show first came into being.

The idea for the performance was to look at the way the adult world makes and shapes the world that young people inhabit
