WELCOME from Festival Director Andy Currums

Hello everyone and welcome to the ninth International Youth Arts Festival. Every year the team at Creative Youth and I have the honour and privilege of working with some of the greatest young talent from around the world. The applications that pass across our desks during the programming process and finally make their way to the stage in July are thrilling, challenging, inspiring and inventive. And the youthful talents we work with extend much further than that onstage, of course - the technicians, designers, marketeers, Project Managers, Front of House, Box Office staff, photographers, reviewers and Press Team are all made up of dedicated and driven young people. We hope one day that IYAF will be a festival for young people - run by young people.

“... THRILLING, CHALLENGING INSPIRING AND INVENTIVE.”

In the interim, us youthless bunch will continue to do what we can to build a platform for a new generation of talent and remind audiences that youth arts is not amateur arts. We must remember that some of the most powerful, pertinent and essential works throughout history have been created by young people. I believe it is the duty of every artist, audience member and facilitator to support, champion and celebrate new voices. With this in mind and with over 200 events to choose from in the following pages, my only piece of advice would be this – take a chance. Attend the show that sounds the oddest. See the act you've never heard of. Indulge in the medium the most distant from your own tastes. You never know what you might find, and it might just change everything. I hope you enjoy and I look forward to seeing you around the festival.

Andy

Cheers,

Death and Dancing is a dark comedy about Max and Max, and their desire to live a life free from prejudice, judgement, expectations and demands of the capitalist, materialistic world we live in.

Trying to figure out who they are perceived to be and who they’d like to be, they forget to focus on what truly matters. Perhaps they could even love each other only if they accepted who they really are. £5 - £8 75 minutes Suitable for 12+ Strong language

Starring Bibi, Bichu and the inimitable Konjowoch Troupe, this is a surrealist retelling of how the cast dreamed of the circus in a country without one, coming together to create one of the world's very first Ethiopian circuses. This show includes audience participation. £10 - £15 55 minutes Suitable for all ages

The Craft Table is a performance installation that exposes the creative process of artisan making. Two performers spend three days in a public space creating items including bread, beer and chocolate, live at their table, selling these items on when finished. With each item sold, information about the economic and labour process involved is passed on to the consumer, weaving together the fictional narrative of the 'craft' and 'quality' of the item and the real economics behind its production.

My Generation Rose Theatre Café

Fri 7th July - Sun 16th July An exhibition celebrating and exploring masterworks made by young people throughout history and across the world. From child prodigy Stevie Wonder to Marvel Superhero and Kingston local Tom Holland, My Generation reminds the audience that youth art is not amateur art. By looking back to the greats of the past and looking forward to tomorrow’s stars, My Generation is a cheering recognition of young artists across mediums, time and the world.

The work created here has been created especially for the festival to demonstrate the art form of model making. It is usual for a theatre designer to present their ideas for a performance in model form, at a scale of 1:25 (25 times smaller than it’s life-size equivalent). Emma has selected scenes from well known fairy tales and presented them at 1:25 in a display of her industry craft and artistic talent. The fantastical element of these stories lends itself to the creation of highly imaginative models, which have been placed specifically so that they become a part of their environment. FREE All day
