Tell Us Who We Are

For the first time, the National Youth Choir of Scotland, National Youth Orchestras of Scotland, Scottish Youth Theatre and YDance collaborate to present this new commission for Festival 2018!

Tell Us Who We Are

About Tell Us Who We Are

In Tell Us Who We Are, the young people question and explore who they are as millennials within society. Through the prism of war, they contrast their lives to all of the young people who have lived in the century following the end of World War One. They have all the world’s information they could ever need at the touch of a button but now, in the Year of Young People, they want to know what the world thinks of them and if they’re voice is being heard.

Featuring performance, dance and new music, the young cast will be joined by a 40 strong choir and a community cast to inhabit the whole space of the iconic Old Fruitmarket venue. Working with arts professionals, the collective has developed this piece to reflect, represent and celebrate the voice of young people today.

Tell Us Who We Are is part of Festival 2018, the cultural programme for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships
