"A COMMITTED AND INTELLIGENT COMPANY."
- THE NATIONAL THEATRE OF GREAT BRITAIN
Collision creates small scale touring theatre for and with young adult audiences.
Collision creates performance that encourage a greater dialogue about what it is to be a young person in todays society, through the exploration of people, place and identity.
We have a specific approach to creating theatre that is rooted in responding to the young person’s experience of their ‘communities.’
Through devised, visual, autobiographical performance and new writing.
We present our work locally, regionally and nationally for we believe young people (under 25's) and their stories are not equally represented in mainstream theatre.
Since our inception in 2013, Collision has created work for and with young adults at The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Rose Theatre London, Edinburgh International Fringe Festival, the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme, Glasgow, Theatre Northern Ireland, various theatres across Scotland, and in non-traditional performance spaces, including parks and nursing homes.
We have created work with and for The National Theatre of Scotland, Aberdeen International Festival, The National Theatre, The Royal National Theatre of Great Britain, Hearts and Minds, Kingston International Youth Arts Festival, ON at Fife, The Scottish Book Trust and had a sell out fringe run.
Lead by Creative Director Clara Bloomfield, Collision regularly collaborates with a range of visiting artists.
