Never Did Me Any Harm

Force Majeure & Sydney Theatre Company

Australian Premiere Season

Australia

“Kate Champion is a rare talent, and whatever she does next must be immediately labelled ‘don’t miss.’”

The Bulletin

Australia’s leading dance theatre company Force Majeure takes inspiration from issues raised in Christos Tsiolkas’ controversial book The Slap in a provocative new work exploring contemporary attitudes to raising children.

In a society where parents have less children, less time, more money and many more opinions on how to produce the perfect child, are we creating an environment that will ultimately lead to a future generation with more hang ups than perfections? Or is this actually an ongoing and age-old dilemma?

In an exciting first-time collaboration between Force Majeure’s Kate Champion and Sydney Theatre Company’s Andrew Upton, Never Did Me Any Harm uses Force Majeure's trademark synthesis of fluid movement, images and real-life interviews to deliver an emotional, humorous and insightful work that cannot fail to resonate with all who were once children.

Note: there will only be one touch tour, which will take place on Sat 17 March, 12.30pm. There is no touch tour at 5.30pm
