”The performance on Saturday was a complete joy to watch. There is something special about watching youngsters with a love for theatre being given such an opportunity. It is a real gift, and something in these financially difficult times that can’t be taken for granted.”
This was just one piece of feedback from those who attended the performance of Dialogues at the Exeter Northcott Theatre in April, created and performed by the gifted and talented members, aged 13-19, of Devon Youth Theatre and Devon Youth Dance Company. See below for photographs from the rehearsals and performance.
The performance was the culmination of a triumphant season for both companies, and for Daisi’s wider youth dance programme, 3D A Chance to Dance. In total all three projects involved more than a thousand children and young people from schools across Devon and Torbay, and gave hundreds of them the opportunity to work with professional dancers and theatre-makers in a professional venue at the Exeter Northcott Theatre and to perform at this fabulous venue.
