Curious Seed and Tramway in association with Perth Theatre present Teenage Trilogy, a show for teenagers and anyone who has ever been one!
Exploring the heady and challenging time of transition that we all must go through, Teenage Trilogy, in Perth Theatre's Joan Knight Studio on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 February, is captivating dance theatre in three dynamic parts: live performance and music, multi-media installation and silent disco made up of a Teenage Times playlist.
Shaped by conversations with teenagers, parents and grandparents in Scotland, Denmark, Belgium, India and Australia, Teenage Trilogy has been in development since 2015, exploring the complex question of what it means and how it feels to be a teenager now and for as long as we care to remember.
Inspiration and ideas for Teenage Trilogy have been collated and curated from time spent working closely with groups of teenagers and ‘vintage teenagers’. A small group of local teenagers from Lyra Young Company have become the project’s invaluable volunteer teenage advisors, helping to make video tutorials, as well as taking on a print project to create a Teenage Trilogy zine.
The voices of teenagers are also heard through contributions to the Teenage Trilogy online selfie call-out: Tell It Like It Is.
Teenage Trilogy also features cameo performances from members of the local Tramway and Perth Theatre groups and communities and the Tinderbox Collective, an Edinburgh based contemporary youth orchestra, bringing together different generations in this celebration of a time of our lives like no other.
Bring your friends, bring your family, but most of all bring your (inner) teenager!
Directed by acclaimed Scottish choreographer Christine Devaney, Teenage Trilogy brings together an outstanding creative team, including visual artist David Maxwell, musician and composer Luke Sutherland (Mogwai, Venus as a Boy), award-winning theatre designer Karen Tennent, internationally renowned lighting designer Simon Wilkinson, innovative digital designers D Fie Foe and four exceptional performers: Andrew Gardiner, Hayley Earlam, Nerea Gurrutxaga and Alexander McCabe.
