Young artists from Kigali, Bristol and Kampala, will explore themes of isolation, community and difference using digital technology.
The interactive *Out of the Blue theatre collaboration will take place simultaneously in the UK and East Africa via platforms such as Facebook Live and Periscope.
work will explore:
- how young people use technology to navigate their way in the world, with one foot in the physical and one foot in the virtual world
- how they engage with globalisation, politics and conflict
- and how the emergence of social media changes young people’s relationships with each other, with their immediate physical communities and with the wider world.
* Out of the Blue is a working title.
The British Council has awarded Out of the Blue the new Art new Audiences grant
