Rosalind's Norwegian Project
On Saturday 9th of June, Rosalind Watt, 16 from Mitchell School of Drama joined six other exceptional young Scottish theatre-makers who travelled from all over Scotland to the capital city to begin working towards representing Scotland this summer at RE:LOCATION 2012, a pioneering International Youth Theatre event held in Stavanger, Norway.
Rosalind, from Mitchell School of Drama, met the group for the first time on Saturday 9th June at Out of the Blue, Dalmeny Street, Edinburgh and immediately began working with leading theatre company Visible Fictions, the National Theatre of Scotland and national development agency Promote YT (Scotland) to form a new, dynamic and bespoke Scottish Company. Here she began the process of creating an ambitious new piece of theatre, which will showcase the best of young acting and theatre-making talent from Scotland on a major international platform.
Hosted by Rogaland Theatre, Norway, RE:LOCATION 2012 is a new International Youth Theatre Project designed to celebrate excellence in performing arts. Scotland is privileged to be one of only six nations invited to participate and is proud to be recognised as a leading nation in youth theatre arts in the Year of Creative Scotland.
The creation of the Scottish Company is a collaborative artistic project led by Promote YT (Scotland), the national support and development organisation for youth theatre, in partnership with leading theatre company Visible Fictions and the National Theatre of Scotland, with investment from Creative Scotland.
