Young people of Fife – we need you!

We’re looking for a group of young people aged between 14 – 26 to join us in Fife to co-create Lots & Not Lots – a concert of voice and movement performed by 12 young people.

 

National Theatre of Scotland and music artist Greg Sinclair (UK) are joining forces to create an immersive, interactive, and inclusive event with young people in Fife that showcases new talent and shares wide ranging perspectives.

Exploring concepts of fullness and nothingness the work will veer between an intricate tapestry of layered voices and bodies to moments of fragile still silence. The performers will act as a unit with occasional improvised vocal outbursts and flashes of absurdity that will dispel the illusion of perfection and give glimpses of the personalities within the ensemble.

The workshops will take place on Thu 23 & Fri 24 Aug 4.30-7.30pm and Sat 25 Aug 10.30am-1.30pm & 2.30-5.30pm at Rothes Halls and will involve:

Games
Learning and singing some songs
Working with patterns on paper, and with voice and movement
Improvisation exercises
Having fun!

After the workshops there will be a 3 day development with the 12 chosen cast members. This will take place 27–29 August. Rehearsals will then take place every Tuesday from 02 Sep – 04 Oct with intensive rehearsals for the next 2 weeks up until the performances on 19 & 20 October at Rothes Hall, Glenrothes. These final performances will run as part of National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof festival.

Here’s what you need to take part:

  • Be aged 14-26
  • Be available to attend one of the workshops on 23-25 August.
  • Be available for the 3 day development on 27-29 August.
  • Be available to rehearse one day a week until October.

We would like to cast the show as diversely as possible and so strongly encourage black and minority ethnic participants and those who consider themselves disabled to apply.

Don’t miss out on this unique to be part of the National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof festival.
