Outdoor Performance

Thinking of bringing your youth theatre workshops or performances outdoors?

This toolkit provides a starting point for groups researching ways to work outdoors. You might want to take your work outside in order to remain sensitive to anxieties around COVID-19, or you might be interested in making this more a part of your long-term practice, and focussing on the benefits of spending time outside.

If you’re interested in exploring more environmental issues check out our Climate Awareness and Green Recovery Toolkit.

Whether you’re urban or rural, there’s never been a better time to wrap up warm and head outside (we are still in Scotland after all!).
