We met David and Laura from NGYT after they came to watch ‘Emerge/ncy’ last summer at Imagine Watford Festival and got in touch with us via twitter to say how much they had enjoyed it. From that initial tweet, a beautiful collaboration has been born!
Next Generation Youth Theatre are an exciting, ambitious and passionate organisation based in Luton, working with hundreds of talented young people to create really high-quality drama, dance and musical theatre.
For the inaugural ‘Imagine Luton' outdoor festival we have come together with NGYT to develop a large-scale outdoor spectacle featuring 100 young people which examines at how we interact with each other and our technology in public spaces. How are these ‘black mirrors’ that are glued to our palms changing our horizons? What happens when we look up instead?
MIRROR SKY will be happening all over Luton Town Centre on Sunday 25th June - near the train station, in the shopping mall, in the high street…. It will culminate in a spectacular finale at 5pm in the main square.
Our ambition is that with the young performers of NGYT, we can create a brilliant new outdoor work for young people that we can tour and remake in the future with other youth theatres and young performers in cities across the UK.
