Boca del Lupo's Micro Performance Series 2013
ASK A TEENAGER: Mammalian Diving Reflex (Toronto)
May 30 – June 2
Teenagers are famously complex and emotionally unstable. Their limbic systems are on overdrive, their hormones are running amok, they’re prone to staying up late, sleeping well past noon and taking crazy risks. It’s no accident. Scientists believe teen brains are particularly alive, active and sensitive. Their behaviour is an evolutionary feature; it’s how they define and distinguish themselves. It’s how they get shit done. Teen brains are fast, risk-taking blobs that make creative and sometimes bizarre leaps and associations, giving them an adaptive edge. This is a scientific fact.
Teens have been taking advice from adults for many years. Now it’s time for these adaptive adolescents to come up with some answers to adults’ problems.
No need to wait until curtain time. Boca del Lupo and Mammalian Diving Reflex invite you to submit your problems on the Facebook event page, through Twitter (#askateenager) or go to www.bocadellupo.com and follow the links to submit anonymously. We’ll pass them on to our panel of teens. They’ll work on your problem with their highly adaptable brains and get back to you with their advice through the Facebook event page, Twitter and during live performances on the dates and times below. You can view video responses to problems already submitted on the Facebook event page and at Boca del Lupo's YouTube channel.
