SURGE: Surge Youth Theatre


Merchant City Festival

Dates and times

Saturday 27 July 2019
2:15PM - 2:45PM

Surge Youth Theatre have been working together since April to create a brand new street theatre act for Merchant City Festival 2019. They have been looking outwards at the world to see where young people can seek their inspiration from. Who can they rely on to take care of their future? This ensemble of young people take to Glasgow’s Merchant City in a riotous new street theatre act that asks who is REALLY in charge of these streets?

Created in partnership with Platform, Easterhouse with support from Glasgow Life. 

Directed by Melanie Jordan.

Scotland’s leading developer of street arts, Surge, presents a superb line up of weird and wonderful street theatre acts, unleashed on the public throughout the Merchant City Festival 

SURGE runs projects to develop street arts, physical theatre and circus in Scotland. We work with artists, performance companies and educators at all levels of experience.  

This year’s annual SURGE festival brings new Scottish work and cutting edge international performances to the streets of Glasgow, bringing them to life in ways never seen before.
