NTS Exchange 2012 - Young Co.
NTS Exchange Festival 2012 at macrobert was the culmination of a nine month project which included master classes and rehearsals with professional artists. It featured six youth theatre groups from Scotland, New York, Ireland and Hong Kong.
During the residency participants took part in a wide range of workshops from experimenting with horror, set design and critiquing theatre to exploring Beijing Opera meditation. Across ten performances each group had the opportunity to showcase their own work onstage. On opening night nine members of Young Co. represented the Citizens Theatre by performing their show This is What We Ask to a standing ovation.
During the week Young Co. also got to take part in Five Minute Theatre, a pop-up hairdressers where you could get your hair cut whilst giving feedback about the project, open-mic nights and a closing ceilidh.
Young Co. performed
THIS IS WHAT IS WE ASK.
