“When they look at me they see a wallflower… an immigrant … an epic gamer.”
You Were Us / We are Here is an exploration. An exploration into the labels that adults place on teenagers. An exploration into what it means when a young person takes up space in the public – or tries to. An exploration into what adults don’t know and don’t see and an exploration about what a public space even means.
Working with performer and director Anne Langford (The Old Vic, Almeida, Donmar Warehouse, Pegasus Theatre, Clean Break), Yard Youth have made a riotous new performance. They want you to be there…
…and they want to be heard.
Yard Youth is a laboratory for theatre, for 12-16 year olds who are interested in performance and getting creative. They work with The Yard to experiment, to investigate, to learn and to create alongside professional artists.
Tickets are £5, although free tickets are available for anyone who needs them. We call these Open Concessions.
