Partnering with Bristol Old Vic Theatre, Hauser & Wirth Somerset is delighted to host the hugely successful Bristol Old Vic youth summer school again this August. This unique workshop provides an opportunity for young people in and around Bruton to create an original piece of theatre, set in the galleries and grounds on Durslade Farm.  

This year’s course participants will be asked to devise new work in response to Martin Creed’s exhibition ‘What You Find’ and explore the theme of ‘connection in the modern world’. Working with the professional creative team from Bristol Old Vic Theatre participants will dissect the idea of what it means to be yourself, to not be yourself, or to try to be someone else and devise a new play told through movement, music and theatre. The course concludes with a final public performance of the new work on Thursday 11 August 2016 set within the grounds at Durslade Farm.  

The workshop will run on weekdays from 1 - 11 August 2016, 10 am - 5 pm daily, and is available to young people aged 12- 19 years.  

Tickets are £120 for the full course.  

We ask that all children are delivered to the gallery and picked up by a responsible adult, please let us know if you wish your child to travel to and from the gallery on their own. Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and drinks as necessary. 

‘If you’re lonely,

If you’re sad,

If you’re lovely,

If you’re mad,  

Then this is for you.’
