Thank you for bringing Boy on the Roof to Shoreditch Town Hall.  Our daughter (11) was initially nervous of being in a new space but was captivated by the show.  She’s a committed footballer (and Liverpool fan), and has very close relationships with Grandparents, so the details and characters really struck her I think.  She said she found it “exciting and intriguing” and loved the moments of tracking through different houses, seeing lives in tiny moments, “like the dance party”, which made her laugh.  Martin and I (who saw Dead Good at Jackson’s Lane and have long been fans of the Vamos team) were delighted to be in such a heartfelt, honest, detailed and inventive world, where relationship and connection are explored with such kindness and humour.  The portrayal of loss was both heartbreaking and gentle;  a reminder to observe people’s gestures and bids for connection in a world that can feel isolated and lonely.  This is essential and accessible theatre.  I found it deeply moving, tender and hopeful.  I work with children considered neurodivergent and in education in outdoor settings and am thinking of how to incorporate mask work into my practice after seeing your work.

It also highlighted how much we are battered with words that can feel both confusing, contradictory and sometimes a pressure or a wounding.  Body awareness and non verbal communication needs so much more nurturing in education, as it is intimately connected to our feelings, our hearts and ultimately enriching our experience of aliveness.  Your work reflected this and as such, is essential.  I hope for an additional tour so I can bring students or wider family members.  Thank you to all the Vamos Team.

Everything about the show was just brilliant. And my daughter (who wasn’t sure about coming) loved it - and the announcment at the start about being able to stim made such a difference. thank you
