Hacks for the Future
20/10/2018 - 20/10/2018
National Theatre of Scotland and Touretteshero (UK) present Hacks for the Future, an immersive, interactive and inclusive event.
Jess Thom of Touretteshero is a theatre-maker, comedian, and disability rights activist, and Touretteshero will bring their project to the Highlands, producing an event with a group of selected young people that showcases new talent and shares wide ranging perspectives.
This inclusive extravaganza of installations, performances, discussions and workshops for disabled and non-disabled will look at history and how to creatively shape the future.
Hacks for the Future is part of National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof festival marking Scotland’s Year of Young People in 2018. A major radical new festival of international performing arts, created by young people working alongside renowned Scottish, British and international theatre practitioners.
Ten companies and artists specialising in daring new work will embed themselves in ten communities around the country, working with local groups of young people to co-create, design, develop and stage a piece of performance. Ten productions will then take place in cities and locations across Scotland as part of the Futureproof festival in September and October 2018.
Founded in 2010, Touretteshero’s mission is to change the world one tic at a time. The company celebrates the humour and creativity of Tourettes and shares it with the widest audience possible to raise awareness and bring about social change.
