Dundee Rep's Young Company present
San Marino, 1972
Thu 21 let's take one of all of us. Together now with us in it, all of us. Take a photo'
Upstairs in the corner of the attic, in the far corner was a dusty box. Inside that box lay the half-forgotten memories of a family. Holiday snaps, smiling faces, souvenirs and sunshine. Until it happened.
In this performance Dundee Rep Young Company attempt to bring the skeleton in the closet to life, to tell the secrets behind the pictures. To speculate about what happened in the market; to re-create what happened on the balcony; to re-imagine what happened in front of the mountain that day in San Marino, 1972.
A story of coincidences, accidents, truths, half-truths and lies.
San Marino, 1972 has been created as part of National Theatre of Scotland's Exchange project for 16-25-year-olds which supports those devising and creating the next generation of theatre. This production is one of 10 new productions being created by 10 young companies from the UK and beyond which will go on to the Exchange Festival, a week-long celebration of performance and creative learning, at Eden Court, Inverness in July.
Dundee Rep Young Company
Our current company members have been meeting as a group for almost a year now. We love working together to explore ensemble driven theatre which is visually exciting and inventive in nature. We are curious about the world and enjoy exploring processes that allows us to investigate these curiosities. We believe that theatre has the power to soothe and discomfort, to entertain and challenge, to provoke and affirm, to thrill you and to break your heart. We hope this performance does some, if not all, of these things!
