Islington Community Theatre presents BRAINSTORM by Ned Glasier, Emily Lim and the company, for six performances from 21 – 25 July, with a press night on 22 July.
A fearless company of young people explore the workings of the adolescent brain, in a new piece from one of the UK’s leading companies making theatre with young people. Created with leading cognitive neuroscientist Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore and drawing upon the life experiences of the cast, Brainstorm is an exploration of the most frustrating, chaotic and exhilarating changes that will ever happen to us.
Islington Community Theatre trains and supports a permanent ensemble of theatre-makers aged 11-19, all of whom are referred by teachers, youth workers or social workers as someone who will benefit from long-term involvement in the programme. Brainstorm was originally presented at Park Theatre and supported by the Wellcome Trust.
