Bristol Old Vic 'Young SixSix'
As proud funders of the Bristol Old Vic's Young SixSix Company, we are pleased to share their video below which was made as part of a wider community project produced in December 2020.
Titled Angels in Bristol, Bristol Old Vic's Artistic Director Tom Morris worked with Vanessa Kisuule (Bristol City Poet 2018 – 2020) and Young SixSix project lead Julia Head in uniting schools and communities across Bristol and the region to create a truly Bristolian version of the Nativity. Angels in Bristol was delivered as nine short stories, landing in subscribers inboxes each day between 20 and 28 December.
A short synopsis of two of the short stories can be seen in the YouTube video below.
Based at Bristol Old Vic, the Young SixSix is an ensemble of young performers from lower socio-economic backgrounds designed to offer specialist training and mentoring in performance arts. The programme provides an alternative journey into the BOV engagement programme for disadvantaged young people.
