National Ensemble 2020 Part Two

November-December 2020 
18-25 years: applications closed

Young theatre-makers continue their campaign for climate justice through new lines of enquiry and experimental digital works. 

Under national lockdown between April-July, this year's National Ensemble made and performed a live site-specific performance on Zoom called Once You See the Smoke investigating climate justice. Performed for three nights, audiences tuned in from all over the world watching twenty performers located across Scotland.  

Building on that success, the Ensemble are back with Director Melanie Jordan, to continue their work on climate justice, focusing this time on the displacement of people. The final piece will be shared on a new digital platform for audiences in December. 

Please note we are planning our approach to delivering National Ensemble 2021 and will release more information in the coming months.  


National Ensemble 2020 is supported by The Nimar Trust and Creative Scotland.
