Highshore School Sharing 

For the past term NYT Associates and members have been leading workshops in Highshore SEN School in Southwark in preparation for our collaboration with Diverse City and Extraordinary Bodies this summer, which will culminate in a performance on the National Theatre’s River Stage.

On Thursday the students staged a performance, sharing a piece they’d been working on with our Associates around the theme of superheroes with the rest of the school and NYT staff.  

Sheffield VR project

This weekend we’re in Sheffield casting for a VR theatre project we’re collaborating with NYT Associates Sean Hollands and Ben Carlin on later this month in the city.
