“This immersive piece both transported and drew the audience into a vulnerable world of first relationships and sexual understanding. The work combined innovative dance which at times traded places with physical theatre enabling a bridge into performance multidisciplinarity where text and dance could sit at ease alongside each other. It is no easy task to take the theme of sex education and transport it with such high production values that the work stands up in any context, this was achieved with grace and dignity by Autin Dance Theatre.”

Claudette Bryanston, Executive & Artistic Director – The Albany, Coventry

Autin believe that effective sex and relationship education is essential if young people are to make responsible and well informed decisions about their lives. A Posi+ive Life is an original performance that engages with young audiences about issues and stories in a safe environment.

“It’s great to see A Posi+ive Life create such a safe, supportive space for young people to talk and share their thoughts as part of a live performance.”
Peter Knott, Area Director for Arts Council England
