International youth theatre workshop coming to Revelstoke

Revelstoke to host David Glass & his experimental youth theatre workshop about youth response to Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik

David Glass is bringing the A.B. Project to Revelstoke on April 8-9.

Revelstoke will play host to internationally renowned dramatist David Glass when he tours his experimental theatre workshop about youth response to Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik.

Glass, the brother of composer Philip Glass, will bring his new collaborative work, the A.B. Project to the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre, giving local youth a chance to work with the renowned director.

The A.B. Project is an experimental youth participation theatre production based around youth responses to the 2011 terrorist attack by Brevik that left 77 Norwegians dead, including 69 young people at a camp for the Worker’s Youth League.

“The young will take back what was taken from them: the future,” is the theme of the workshop, which aims to encourage youth to create a dramatic work. The completed project will tell the victims’ stories through drama, dance, music, design and media.

Local youth will get to play a part in the final production, which Glass will be launching at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre in England.

Glass is being hosted by Anita Hallewas, the executive director of Flying Arrow Productions. She recently led the production of Welcome Home, a community theatre project written by and starring Revelstoke locals.

She is thrilled to be hosting the workshop and providing this opportunity to local youth.

“Young people should have a voice and they don’t have a voice,” said Hallewas in a news release, adding the central question that sparked this creative project was, “How can we get these young peoples’ voices heard?”

She is hoping to attract people from throughout the Southern Interior, including First Nations youth, to the workshop.

The workshop takes place April 8-9 at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre.
