NT Connections Festival - Day 6
artsdepot Youth Theatre & TRANSMISSION
NT Connections celebrates new writing for young people, performed by young people as part of the National Theatre’s nationwide festival programme.
Tonight's performances are:
The Changing Room
By Chris Bush | Performed by artsdepot Youth Theatre
A lyrical piece about existing on the cusp of growing up. Are we teenagers? Are we children? What are we? It's about bodies in flux and perspectives shifting; knowing change is coming but not what that change will look like.
Set in and around a swimming pool, The Changing Room follows a group of teens full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and desires for what comes next.
The Free Nine
By In-Sook Chappell | Performed by TRANSMISSION
Nine teenagers flee North Korea, dreaming of a new life in the South. But the danger is far from over. With threats around every corner, perhaps the mysterious figure of The Big Brother can help them? Or is he the very person they’re running from? As their lives hang in the balance, could the teenagers’ fate ultimately come down to a garish South Korean game show?
Based on a true story, this is the story of hope, escape and cultural difference.
