Curious Seed and Tramway present Teenage Trilogy in association with Perth Theatre. 

Exploring the heady and challenging time of transition that we all must go through, Teenage Trilogy is captivating dance theatre in three dynamic parts: live performance and music, multi-media installation and silent disco. Shaped by conversations with teenagers, parents and grandparents in Scotland, Denmark, Belgium, India and Australia, this new production from Curious Seed is a show for teenagers and anyone who has ever been one! 

Directed by acclaimed Scottish choreographer Christine Devaney, Teenage Trilogy brings together an outstanding creative team, including visual artist David Maxwell, musician and composer Luke Sutherland (Mogwai, Venus as a Boy), award-winning theatre designer Karen Tennent, lighting designer Simon Wilkinson, innovative digital designers D Fie Foe and four exceptional performers: Andrew Gardiner, Hayley Earlam, Nerea Gurrutxaga and Alexander McCabe. Meet the cast and creative team here.

In February 2018, Teenage Trilogy was performed to packed houses at Tramway, Glasgow and Perth Theatre. Thanks to everyone who played a part in making it such a great experience.

"Devaney’s choreography...translates the internal maelstrom of teenage hormones into movement that wrenches and teeters, stills into moments of physical self-discovery or cuts loose into the sheer ecstasy of being young and on the cusp of future hopes."

The Herald

"Delicate, yet as fizzy as a shaken up Coke bottle, Curious Seed’s Teenage Trilogy captures teen spirit, teenage kicks, teen dreams and teenage dirtbags alike."

PARTICIPATION PROJECTS

Throughout the making of Teenage Trilogy we have worked with a wide range of participants, engaging them in many different ways during the creative process all the way from the early research and development to the production and performance phases of the work.  Their creative contributions are a key part of the finished work and the ongoing Teenage Trilogy project.  Learn more about some of these projects including our recent work in India - TEENAGE TIMES REMIX - KOLKATA! below.

DIGITAL PROJECTs

We have created the digital project, TELL IT LIKE IT IS by inviting teenagers to submit 'Selfie Videos' telling us about their own teenage experience, confronting stereotypes and sharing aspirations.  We have also created the TEENAGE TRILOGY YOU TUBE CHANNEL featuring tutorials from our teenage advisors group!  Learn more here!
