The Edge Ensemble is Western Edge Youth Art’s flagship professional theatre company specialising in sophisticated, culturally-aware, interactive performances that explore a range of complex issues.
This talented group of artists is available for interactive performances at conferences, schools and forums tailored to your needs. Their most recent interactive work, Iago, addresses issues of violence against women and gender politics, and has been specifically created for young teenagers (years 10 – 12). This work has been carefully crafted to be age appropriate and engaging while delivering powerful messages about respectful relationships between men and women.
Western Edge Youth Arts has worked extensively in schools for more than 20 years, using sophisticated creative processes to inspire young people to learn in a range of curriculum areas. Talk to us about one-off workshops or a longer-term residency in your school.
Playback theatre invites audiences to tell real stories of events from their lives, which are played out on the spot.
Western Edge Youth Arts is proud of a long and close association with the independent playback theatre company, Playback West. Performances are unique in their warmth, inclusivity, potential for great humour and depth: it’s instant raw theatre made from the stuff of real life.
Playback West is available to perform at celebrations, conferences, festivals and other events.
