Beyond Face Youth Company gives young people, from the ages of 11+, the opportunity to work with Professional Directors, Choreographers and Writers to create new work, perform in professional theatre venues and watch upcoming performances at local theatres in the city.
“The reason why I love Beyond Face Youth Company is because it is a place where I can express my love for acting, music and dance, and feel comfortable and am not judged.” – Emmanuel, Youth Company Member.

A Good Neighbour
Invited by the Atlantic Project to respond to the theme of ‘a good neighbour’, Beyond Face has initiated a series of performances exploring the idea of ‘home’ and neighbourly relations in Plymouth. The performances of short monologues will take place at the B-bar on the Barbican. This event will also be accompanied by a discussion investigating some of the challenges of co-existence in Plymouth today and how important images can be in changing people’s perceptions both positively and negatively. Supported by Plymouth Culture and the Horizons Project.
Performance date: Sunday 4th March 2018, B-Bar, Barbican Theatre
