EMERGING centres on the relationship between a transgender son and his mother, as they embark on a journey into the unknown. Scarabeus combines aerial dance and visual theatre with excerpts from letters written to each other in an immersive multimedia performance. Artistic director Daniela and son Naissa harness their art to better understand each other, as they navigate a complex life-changing process.

While sensitively exploring the themes of gender identity and representation, EMERGING is an intimate experience of the power of creativity to facilitate profound change, created in consultation with young gender diverse and trans people and their parents/carers.
