"A COMMITTED AND INTELLIGENT COMPANY."
- THE NATIONAL THEATRE OF GREAT BRITAIN
Collision creates small scale touring theatre & creative experiences for, with and by young people.
Collision creates performance that encourages a greater dialogue about what it is to be a young person in today's society, through the exploration of self, place and identity.
Committed to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child,
we activate young people's voices.
We have a specific approach to creating theatre that is rooted in responding to the young person’s experience of their ‘communities.’
Through devised, verbatim, autobiographical, physical theatre performance and new writing we present our work regionally, nationally and internationally for we believe young people (under 25's) and their stories are not equally represented in mainstream theatre.
Since our inception in 2012, Collision has created work for and with young adults at Teater Ekamatra (Singapore), The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Rose Theatre London, Edinburgh International Fringe Festival, the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme, Glasgow, Theatre Northern Ireland, Singapore Drama Educators Association, Hamilton Festival -New Zealand, and in a range of non-traditional performance spaces, including parks, nightclubs and nursing homes.
We have created work with and for The International Association of Performing Arts for Youth (ipay), Youth Theatre Arts Scotland, The National Theatre of Scotland, Aberdeen International Festival, The National Theatre, The Traverse, The Royal National Theatre of Great Britain, ITAC GHANA, Hearts and Minds, Kingston International Youth Arts Festival, ON at Fife, The Scottish Book Trust and had a sell out fringe run.
Led by Director Clara Bloomfield Collision regularly collaborates with a range of visiting artists and creative organisations.
