National Ensemble: Once You See the Smoke

The 2020 National Ensemble group of artists worked quickly to digitally reimagine the production Once You See the Smoke, creating a radical online performance over three days in July...

The Scottish Youth Theatre National Ensemble is a national touring model for young people interested in making interdisciplinary art form, radical political theatre. In light of the COVID-19 crisis, the 2020 National Ensemble cancelled their national tour, instead staying safely at home to create a new site-specific work for the Zoom virtual realm; responding to issues surrounding climate justice. This radical new piece of live digital-theatre was shared with audiences on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of July.
