NOW ONLINE - The Reconnection Collection

Live Theatre is delighted to release The Reconnection Collection, a short film featuring the work and voices of Live Youth Theatre members, created during and in response to the Covid-19 lockdown.

The Reconnection Collection is a moving, funny and fascinating insight into the thoughts and observations of young people aged 10-25 during these challenging times.

Live Youth Theatre is a vital part of Live Theatre’s acclaimed work with children and young people. The Live Theatre team and Live Youth Theatre members weren’t going to allow the physical restrictions necessitated by the pandemic to put a hold on their creativity. Although the 100 Live Youth Theatre members were unable to meet in person in their Live Theatre base, nothing could stop them from reconnecting on line and in safety via the platform of Zoom.

In September 2020, Live Youth Theatre’s Autumn term commenced with weekly online sessions, facilitated with freelance theatre makers. Filmmaker Brett Chapman worked alongside the young people and the team to curate and capture cohesive content – the outcome of which is the superb short film, The Reconnection Collection.
