Show about first experiences being performed by talented youngsters
An autobiographical theatre performance created by a group of youngsters premieres next week.
First Things First is a show about first experiences, drawing on the things we experience for the very first time.
First steps, first kisses and first memories of mothers have all been used as inspiration.
Creators have said it is about things they have done, and experiences they have not yet worked up the courage to try.
The performance has been conceived by the Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) Homegrown group and theatre company Glas(s) Performance.
BAC Homegrown are a group of 24 young people aged 13-25, who are provided with creative space by the theatre.
They take part in a range of different projects, such as drop-in workshops, theatrem open mic nights and beatboxing.
It will be the biggest Homegrown production to date, following the success of last summer's show Brave.
Collaborators Glas(s) Performance have directed shows for The National Theatre of Scotland and won a Herald Angel award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
