About Emergence 2019

Youth Theatre Arts Scotland presents Emergence 2019, a celebration of bold new works-in-progress from the country’s leading youth theatre directors.

Each new piece is the culmination of a 3-month long artistic development programme in which each director has been exploring and expanding their practice in collaboration with some of Scotland’s most talented young performers.

Join us to witness the first sharing of these works which will shine a light on the ambition and quality of creative work by young theatre-makers.

Full line-up to be announced soon.

Youth Theatre Arts Scotland’s Directors’ Development Programme has been made possible with funding from the Gannochy Trust and Creative Scotland, and the support of Edinburgh International Festival, Traverse Theatre and Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society.

Age 12+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Emergence 2019 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
