‘Retell Again and Again,’ Bristol Old Vic Youth Theatre Summer School Performance, Hauser & Wirth Somerset, 2023. Film: Lee Pretious. Sound: Kathleen Frances
This August, Hauser & Wirth Somerset returned with the hugely successful Bristol Old Vic Youth Theatre Summer School.
Taking inspiration from the exhibition ‘GRUPPENAUSSTELLUNG,’ this experimental and immersive performance, titled ‘Retell, Again and Again’ incorporated choreographed movement, singing, monologues and soundscape, and was co-developed by the students and directors.
We have been working in partnership with Bristol Old Vic since 2014 to give young people interested in performing arts an opportunity to work with professional directors, to engage with the gallery’s exhibitions and artists, and to perform to the local community. The subsidised summer school is a rare opportunity for young people, aged between 11 – 16 years, to work with these directors to further their skills in drama and the performing arts.
