Partnering with Bristol Old Vic Theatre, Hauser & Wirth Somerset is delighted to host the hugely successful Bristol Old Vic Youth Theatre Summer School again this August. This is an incredible opportunity for young people interested in drama and performing arts to work with professional directors to create an original piece of theatre. In collaboration with the team at Bristol Old Vic Theatre, this year’s course participants will be asked to devise a new play told through movement, music and theatre. They will take Rashid Johnson’s exhibition as their starting point. The Summer School will run on weekdays from 14 until 24 August 2017, 10 am – 5 pm daily, and culminates in a public performance on Thursday 24 August 2017, set within the grounds of Hauser & Wirth Somerset. It is available to young people aged 11 – 16 years. This is a subsidised event and tickets are £140 for the full course. We ask that all participants are delivered to the gallery and picked up by a responsible adult, please let us know if you wish your child to travel to and from the gallery on their own. Children should bring a packed lunch, snacks and drinks as necessary.
