Violet Rose Bite

Violet Rose Bite is a theatrical self-portrait about growing up, about becoming. How do we become who we are? What moulds us? Janni Younge invites us into her life for a refreshingly honest insight into the creation of identity. From the neighbour’s false teeth to front fastening bras, to the deepest reaches of her inner self, this is Janni’s journey through childhood and adolescence. Along the way she confronts her own insecurities and defences. She shares this story with clay, puppets, shadows, drawings and music.
