Belgrade Theatre and Grapevine explore life under lockdown for local teenagers
With schools across the world on lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Grapevine on a new project that aims to tackle the impact of isolation and anxiety on teenagers’ mental health, providing a space for them to explore and share their experiences of the lockdown.
The Coronavirus Time Capsule is a week-by-week project created by London-based youth theatre Company Three, which has been made available to groups of young people across the world. Groups create new videos every week responding to different topics such as home life, school, exercise and friendship. Each video will offer a window into the worlds of the participants involved, showing them at home, with their families and in their rooms.
At the end of the lockdown, the videos will be collected in one overarching time capsule, available for anyone to watch, and for the participants to look back on and remember this extraordinary time.
At the Belgrade Theatre, our team have been working hard to continue engaging with youth and community groups during lockdown, even as we face the greatest crisis our industry has seen in a lifetime. With over 70% of our income having vanished overnight, we are relying on diminishing reserves and the generosity of donors and supporters to continue with this vital work. To help secure a future for our theatre and for projects like our Coronavirus Time Capsule, please consider making a donation to us online.
