Young Fest at the Bluecoat

Young Fest at the Bluecoat at Bluecoat, City Centre, 22–23 April 2017 - Book now

This weekend sees a fine celebration of all things physical theatre especially for young people and their families from Tmesis Theatre (who also run May’s exciting PhysicalFest in Liverpool).

Top notch free workshops and performances  with leading artists will give small people the chance to do, make, dance , perform and explore different ways to express themselves in the most creative and convivial ways possible.

Booking is recommended in advance. We are looking forward to dodging Artemis Production’s hungry stilt-walking Praying Mantas. Other top picks include Jennifer Essex’s subversive show Space Rebel Princess and Superhero Dance Party workshop, the opportunity to conjure up tales from seemingly thin air in a storytelling workshop with improvised theatre company Impropriety and an Acrobatics and Physical Comedy workshop with Polichinelo Circus. There’s also the opportunity to make a monster with leading puppeteers Headstrung then take it to the Monster Beast Disco. Bring it on.

Tickets are free but need to be booked in advance
