Developed with real ‘grandpairings’ from Morecambe and Lancaster, performer Niki McCretton and digital artist Kathy Hinde have created an entertaining physical, musical and visual jaunt, integrating films of real grannies with the artists’ own experiences as grandchildren.
Relative is suitable for those aged 11 to 111 who like nostalgia and are partial to a good time. Above all, it will appeal to those who have ever been a grandparent, a grandchild… or both.
Award-winning performer Niki McCretton has an international reputation for her trademark mix of physicality, dance and humour. Kathy Hinde is an acclaimed artist who has exhibited her work and collaborated with other artists across the globe.
Relative was commissioned by Nuffield Theatre Lancaster and is supported by The Merlin Theatre, Take Art and Dance South West.
