A devised piece of theatre by the Belgrade Young Company.

Playlist was performed by the Belgrade Young Company from 4 – 9 March 2013 in the B2 space

With no script the Company worked with Neil Bettles, Artistic Director of ThickSkin who gave them the starting point of an MP3 player that is found on a bench in a city park, the only clues to the owner’s identity are the tracks. Playlist showcased the brightest of the Belgrade’s youth talent as they came together in a blistering new piece of physical theatre that asks if we are really defined by the music we listen to and if we all have a soundtrack to our lives.

The company had a fun and engaging process. you can watch this video showing how much fun the young people had during the rehearsal process.

The Belgrade Young Company was formed in 2010 to try and provide opportunities for our more experienced participants to continue to develop their skills set. The shows we do with them follow more closely the way in which a professional show is produced, giving them an experience that takes them closer towards the Performing Arts as a career choice, therefore supporting the Belgrade’s charitable objectives, to develop creative professionals.
