Scottish Youth Theatre and An Lanntair present…. Elevate
All welcome to join us in Stornoway Town Hall for a Performance by our Elevate participants – young people from the Isle of Lewis and Harris.
Elevate has been taking place this week as a summer training ground for aspiring young theatre makers aged 14 – 18. All week, young theatre makers from the island have been collaborating with Theatre Artist, Fraser MacLeod and Composer/Sound Designer Ross Brown to create a site-specific performance which celebrates technology and theatre. Using mobile phones, music programmes and soundscapes they have created an interactive digital theatre piece in response to space, place and their own authentic stories.
Elevate is specifically aimed at young people ready to take the next step in their journey as theatre makers, whether that is applying to a higher education institute or registering for the Scottish Youth Theatre National Ensemble. This programme will furnish you with what you need to continue your development.
Participation is completely free and those who take part must be able to commit to the whole period of the course.
Elevate is supported by the Educational Institute of Scotland and The Theatre Development Trust
The course has taken place at Lews Castle College.
