If a professional theatre project aims to give voice to youth regarding the future of the planet, shouldn’t the project involve their input in all areas of the production, not just as performers?
12 is professional theatre for adults that is by necessity performed & co created with youth. In addition, the project includes photographer Catherine Robson, age 15, capturing images during the rehearsal & development process, as well as performances. Not only that, we are so fortunate to have 13 year old Sketch Artist Jennifer Robson at every rehearsal, creating their interpretation of moments & scenes & characters through their visual art.
