t***k you| A word from the rehearsal room

Ahead of Bristol Old Vic Young Company’s newly devised productionwe caught up with James Kent,  t***k you‘s Visual Artist, to find out just how the show is shaping up ahead of its 2 Aug debut at St. Brendan’s Sixth Form College Theatre.

t***k you is a show unlike anything I’ve worked on to date. It’s main priority for me is giving a voice to a generation that doesn’t feel that they’re being listened to, especially with our current political climate, and the visual aspect (projection/set/costume) is about facilitating and supporting their voices: anger, celebration, frustration, joy.

What that means is I’ve spent the majority of the rehearsals listening, watching and debating – a lot of debating – so that we find a language that supports rather than distracts or dominates.

What I do know is that although there’s a lot they are exasperated about (and rightly so) this show is a celebration, so expect colours and lights, a cinematic theatrical experience of the power this young company have.

Exploring the relationship between youth and power in the world today, catch Bristol Old Vic Young Company’s brand new show t***k you 2-5 Aug. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
