Prepare to have your imagination hot-wired.This year’s Globe Young Company production is the result of a creative collision between east and west. Guided by the co-artistic directors of Halifax’s renowned 2b theatre, five of Saskatchewan’s most exciting young artists will bring everything they’ve got to the creation of a new and original work of theatre.
For 11 years, 2b theatre’s Christian Barry and Anthony Black have been making waves across Canada and beyond with stage works that embrace the artist-audience relationship and reinvent theatre for the 21st century. Their restless energy and fearless invention will be a powerful catalyst for the artists of the Globe Young Company, who were selected because of the tremendous creativity they have already demonstrated with Globe Theatre and elsewhere.
Globe Theatre’s Young Company initiative has already led to one remarkable stage creation -- The Alice Nocturne, written and directed by Joey Tremblay in collaboration with earlier company members. Come and witness the birth of another unforgettable story. Come and enjoy the company of the young.
