National Theatre of Scotland and Glas(s) Performance (producers of award-winning young people’s company Junction 25) (UK) present MOTION, a piece created with young men in HMP and YOI Polmont.

Performed by young men in custody this original piece explores questions of identity and inheritance and what it means to be a young man in contemporary Scotland today. What is the impact of masculinity on us? What impact can we have? What happens next? MOTION is about the things that affect young men in Scotland today.

Due to the nature of this event the audience will be by invitation only


MOTION 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.

Presented by National Theatre of Scotland and Glas(s) Performance
