Young Company: Creators

Using play and exploration, the Young Company Creators will make creative work that interacts with the world and young people’s place within it.

Together we will explore what we want to say about the world, who we want to say it to, how we want to say it, and who we’d like to work with to make this happen.

We will share what we make with audiences at Northern Stage and beyond.

We might use theatre, film, performance art, spoken word, dance, or music – that’s up to you to decide. However we do it, this is the place to discover, express yourself, make friends, and be heard.

The world is a tricky place to navigate, let’s do it together!

Young Company Creators is completely free to take part in. Travel bursaries are available, and food will be provided at sessions.
