A daring dance production capturing how young people see the world

Directed by Charlotte Vincent
Composer Jules Maxwell

To celebrate their 30th Anniversary, VDT presents a brand-new live production PLAY at the Corn Exchange, Brighton Dome, made and performed by four local young people and brilliant Polish collaborator Aurora Lubos.

Tracing an unreliable timeline through past works, PLAY reflects on the emotional upheaval of the last few years and celebrates young people’s incredible resilience and imagination in the face of huge personal and societal change.


VDT is Associate Company at Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival. VDT is a National Portfolio Organisation, funded by Arts Council England. PLAY has emerged from workshops with young people across Brighton and Sussex, throughout 2023. With thanks to All Sorts, Third Space, Hummingbird Refugee Group, South East Dance Boys Group, Theatre Workshop, B Starz Academy, B-Fest at Brighton Youth Centre, Ceyda Tanc’s Youth Group, BACA, Youth Drama Group in Newhaven, Hazel Court School in Eastbourne, Sir Robert Woodard Academy in Lancing, Cavendish School Eastbourne and participants at VDT’s 2023 Summer School, supported by Brighton Holiday and Food (HAF) Programme.
