Trigger Warning: This post discusses a performance work that explores themes of violence, emotional abuse and PTSD in war veterans and may be triggering for survivors.

Good Little Soldier is a new physical theatre piece about the ways in which war can return home with those who survive it. Permeating family life, far too often it results in cycles of anguish and dysfunction being passed on to subsequent generations. Director Mark Howett devised the choreography and text collaboratively alongside Ochre Contemporary Dance Company dramaturg Phil Thompson and a five-strong cast, featuring members of Gold Coast-based performing arts collective The FARM and flagship Western Australian contemporary dance company, Co3.
