Studio opening, short performance, and launch of ’Too Old To Be Young’ film clip @ Pako West farmers market, 12 December '20

Losing light and I’m only 15

I should be much older the things I’ve seen

At home, online,

I’ve lost my carefree

Am I too old to be young or

Am I too young to be old?

These are the questions

That my little hands hold.

Unapologetically Myself is a contemporary performance by young creatives encompassing drama and music. This project has evolved from a number of creative workshops led by Somebody’s Daughter Theatre Company Artists, and held at Courthouse Youth Arts in Geelong.

Based on real life experiences, the story explores identity, race, gender and sexuality.  The writing and themes come directly from the young artists and touch on issues pertinent to young lives; grappling with anxiety, developing a sense of identity and finding a place of belonging.

 Who am I?
What am I supposed to be?
Am I LGBTQIA or just me?
As a child my letters were ADHD
I’ve got a bad case of Acronymia’

In 2019 the SDT team worked with the young people to remount ‘Unapologetically Myself’ and took the show on tour to regional schools and communities.
