Synopsis

A lot can happen in eight years...

This summer YMT is embarking on an innovative and exciting project in rural Cumbria. 36 unique performers aged 16-20 will be asking the question:

Where will I be in the future?

Using creative, expressive performance the all-female cast will question their lives, the world they inhabit now and forecast their futures…and in eight years time they will return to see just how accurate their predictions were.

An ambitious and thought-provoking artistic experiment which begins in 2009... and ends in 2017!

Tickets are free. The performance is a promenade (moving) performance which involves some walking, and parts may take place outside - please bring an umbrella as the performance will go ahead whatever the weather!
