To further cement Bristol Old Vic’s increasingly relevent status in the Bristolian conscience, we are collaborating with the fantastic Bristol Harbour Festival, pedestrianising King Street for a weekend of theatrical spectacle, performance and participatory events.
Bristol Old Vic’s pioneering Young Company will turn the cobbled street into a temporary performance space. The performances will involve around 100 young people from across the city, who are busy working with professional artists to create and rehearse two new pieces of work especially commissioned for the festival.
Alongside these showcase performances there will be opportunities for Festival goers to explore Bristol Old Vic through a guided tour, to have a cup of coffee in the café, to meet some of the Bristol Old Vic team, and for younger audience members, to find out how they can get involved in the Young Company on a regular basis.
On the horizon:
- Fallen – A performance that explores flight, risk and falling in love, directed by Miranda Cromwell
- Run – Join our running club! and dare to ask, what am I running from? directed by Jesse Jones
Also in the programme is a special, informal performance of Dr Seuss’s whimsical bedtime story told by Year 6 of the Bristol Old Vic Young Company, directed by Rosie Giarratana.
