Running fast to stand still

devised by Dundee Rep’s 14-16’s Youth Theatre
directed by Lisa Williamson
designed by Leila Kalbassi

Dundee Rep: Thu 19 Jun 7.30pm
Rothes Halls, Glenrothes: Fri 4 – Sun 6 Jul

Can you hold it? Find it? Build it? Give it to others? Force it? Achieve it? Earn it? Steal it? Keep it?

This is a search. No, sorry it’s a test. Actually wait, it’s an experiment. Or is it a race with only one winner? Maybe really it’s a moment. A moment in time where it’s just us and you. Oh yeah you’re there too. We’re all together and we’re just trying to figure out…well we’re just trying to figure out how to make it all okay. How to be happy. How hard can it be?

Running fast to stand still is a devised performance exploring the idea of finding happiness by Dundee Rep’s 14-16’s Youth Theatre. Join us as we ask questions, make statements, take advice, give compliments and dance. Yes, there may even be dancing.

 

The Little Prince

an adaptation by Dundee Rep’s 16-18s Youth Theatre
directed by Gemma Nicol and young assistant director Andrew Manzi
designed by Leila Kalbassi and young design assistant Georgia McAllister

Dundee Rep: Thu 19 Jun 7.30pm
Rothes Halls, Glenrothes: Fri 4 – Sun 6 Jul

“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye”

What will you see? An elephant eating boa constrictor, a business man who counts stars, a solitary Rose or a young prince with endless tales of intergalactic travel?

Adapted by the company from the well-loved novella The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, our story, on one level, is about a pilot’s discovery in the desert of a young prince from another planet and on another level it is a thought-provoking tale about the importance of innocence, love and imagination.

In addition to their performance at Dundee Rep, the 16-18’s Youth Theatre has been selected to perform their adaption of The Little Prince at the National Festival of Youth Theatre (NFYT), the UK’s largest annual gathering of youth theatres which takes place over a weekend in July.

This is a brilliant opportunity for the youth theatre to meet other young people from youth theatres across Scotland, Ireland, France and Norway, participate in exciting, artistic workshops led by some of the UK’s leading practitioners, enjoy other youth theatre performances and take part in a variety of performance opportunities.

For further information about NFYT please visit Youth Theatre Arts Scotland website: www.ytas.org.uk .  Tickets to the NFYT performance will go on sale to the public in June 2014 and will be available through the Rothes Halls Box Office on 01592 611101 or at www.onfife.org.uk
