Swallowing Your Idols

Lost Kids Collective presents 


by Xana 


26th April 




Part of the John Thaw Initiative 

Curated by Otherland Theatre


Memories don’t forgive. Children don’t forget. Adults don’t grow up.

Having compartmentalised and built a world seemingly free from trauma, Swallowing Your Idols follows three iterations of the same human who use their imagination to cope with being thrown into adulthood and facing their own accountability. SYI is a never ending episode told through music, hacked toys and poetry. Swallowing Your Idols is the apology and forgiveness owed to your past selves. Sound and vocal loop artist, Xana, presents a visceral exploration into the experience of aggressor, protector, victim, and the spaces of solace we create in order to choose to live each day.
