Thinking about the Summer…

??The sun is shining brightly here at TWTC HQ, and it is inspiring us to look at new venues for our interactive Walking Theatre performances! Where would YOU like to join TWTC on an outdoor theatre adventure this Summer? 

Throwback Thursday!

Today we are going back in time to 2013, when The Walking Theatre Company created the first ever Canadian Walking Youth Theatre, made up of a wonderfully talented, diverse group of pupils from Powerview School, Manitoba descended from Canadian First Nations (Cree, Ojibwe, Métis), and French, Irish and Scottish settlers.

The Canadian Walking Youth Theatre was formed as a part of a professional youth team of performers, to give the pupils of Powerview School, experience within the creative sector, and with working in the arts with a professional Scottish theatre company.

TWTC and CYWT

Specifically for the project with the Powerview Pupils, TWTC’s Creative Director and in-house playwright, Sadie Dixon-Spain, created “Selkirk’s New Nation” – a brand new, original work, exploring the lives of the displaced Highlanders who settled in Canada in the 1800s.

Our Canadian Walking Youth Theatre performed in both Canada and Scotland – including performances at The Scottish Parliament and the stunning Isle of Lismore!

Celebrate Midsummer with TWTC!
