More Information on Japan/UK Youth Exchange: To See You, At Last Selection Workshops

Leeds Playhouse is offering young people aged 16 – 21 the opportunity to visit Japan and collaborate with a group of Japanese young people to make a brand new international piece of theatre.

To See You, At Last is an exciting new project that will see 8 young people in Leeds and 8 young people in Tokyo collaborate on a new piece of theatre exploring connections and reunions.

Working with theatre-makers Alexander Ferris (UK) and Go Fujii (Japan) in partnership with our friends at ala Public Arts Centre, Kani, this is a very special opportunity. If you are a passionate young person who enjoys making theatre, meeting new people and having new experiences, book your place on one of our selection workshops.

In addition to the selection workshop, please also complete an application form and a Video Postcard.

The project is due to run here in Leeds from 29 June to 27 July, with the trip to Kani in Japan fro 1 August to 14 August. More information about the dates is available in the downloadable application form.

Book Tickets

Captioned Performance

Open captioning allows theatre goers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

British Sign Language Interpreted

A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.

Audio Described

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

Relaxed Performance

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia-Friendly Performance

Dementia friendly performances are for all audiences. The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs. Additional dementia-aware staff, quiet spaces, clear signage and visual markers, sound and lighting adjustments and flexible seating options all help to create a supportive, shared experience.

Sing Along

Singalong with the cast in this exclusive performance. Join in as loud as you like, fancy dress is optional but highly recommended.

Parent & Baby Performance

A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
