Bounce Theatre is delighted to celebrate The Grace Dear Youth Theatre turning one this summer. Initially envisaged as a digital summer project for young people to stay connected in lockdown, the group has gone from strength to strength this year.
We have directly supported over 25 young people during the pandemic. They connected over Zoom from across London, forming friendships that have carried them through each lockdown. The group have shared experiences about life in lockdown, returning to school, and their hopes for the recovery.
This culminated in the group writing their own film, which has been made over Zoom and in person. With different pockets of people meeting up on the Southbank for the last two months.
As this part of the project draws to an end, the group took a moment to thank their funders – The Grace Dear Trust for seeing them through this very surreal year.
You can watch their work on our new Watch
page. More to be added soon.
