Because I Say So

In the unique universe of Because I Say So, Unga Klara helps us consider why kids have so little influence in their own lives, and on society as a whole. Inspired by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl's book, Childism, which explores the notion that children have their own autonomy, Unga Klara set out to create a work that centers around the child's perspective. Renowned for its cutting-Edge Theater work tackling complex issues through heightened movement and avant garde aesthetics, Unga Klara frequently works with young people and continually creates work that explores the role and experiences of children in modern society.
