The Trail of Forgotten Things – Young People’s Performance Project

The Trail of Forgotten Things was a performance project that ran in York for creative young people interested in dance, theatre, and writing. The project director was Sam Lawrence and The Trail of Forgotten Things enabled the young people to create a performance piece that utilised the capabilities of the specially designed TlotT performance App.

Project dates:

25th - 29th May, 2015

A week long intensive creative process for 11-16 year-olds, the project culminated in two performances at the National Railway Museum, York, where the bespoke TlotT performance App whisked the audience into a parallel world filled with movement and words - all created during the project - as they watched the live performance.
