This month, the Belgrade Youth Theatre present a digital rendering of Like There’s No Tomorrow, a climate-conscious play co-created by our Young Company in a rare commission by NT Connections.
The cast and Co-Directors are currently doing a fantastic job of capturing performances on film, and collaborating with talented, local digital creatives to bring the piece together.
Here you can find out more about the wonderful editor, animator and composer working behind the scenes to bring our digital performance of Like There’s No Tomorrow to life.
