Find out how our young participants are exploring Zoom as a creative platform

In response to feedback from our Belgrade Youth participants, we’re excited to have launched a new initiative to help them stay connected and creative during lockdown.

Bringing together young people from our various youth theatre groups, Telling Stories on (the Small) Screen is a nine-week project exploring Zoom as a platform for creating new work. Up to 20 participants, divided into two groups, will have the opportunity to learn about acting, writing and directing for the small screen, while taking a step into the unknown with us and discovering ways of working together online.

The workshops will build towards the creation of an original piece of work, which we will aim to share with the public in mid-July, just before the school-term ends.

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 this, please consider making a donation to us online.
