Volcano Youth Company

Sat 29 Feb 2020 to Sat 11 Jul 2020

For ages 15-21. You'll immerse yourself in devising & improvising, physical theatre and contemporary drama. You will create your own work and have the opportunity to perform it in a supportive professional and public setting.

The 2020 season will begin with tryouts in February/March. Dates TBA!

Volcano Youth Company provides an opportunity for young people to explore their ideas, inspire one another, and discover new skills. The emphasis is on enabling the participants to unlock their creativity through experimentation in performance and to build trust and confidence (in themselves and one another) in a supportive professional environment. We challenge young people with improvisational tasks that require practical, imaginative participation. Volcano aims to equip young performers with the tools and the skills to think and move for themselves with confidence and to embrace risk and vulnerability in a collaborative setting.

Led by Paul Davies, Volcano Theatre’s Artistic Director, and Catherine Bennett, choreographer and movement director. At Volcano Theatre in Swansea High Street.

A parent/guardian's consent will be required for under-18s.
