The making of SKIN in Bare

Youth theatre comes to the Gallery

Video: The making of SKIN in Bare (12 minutes)

This video takes you behind the scenes with a ground-breaking collaboration between the National Portrait Gallery and the Canberra Youth Theatre (CYT).

Between 27 and 30 August 2015 within the Bare: Degrees of Undress exhibition space, CYT daily performed a durational work of four hours responding to the exhibition.

The work was completely devised by the performers under the co-direction of Katie Cawthorne and Alison Plevey, SKIN examined the gradual exposure of the human being literally and metaphorically. SKIN won ‘Best Ensemble in a play’ in the 2015 Canberra Area Theatre Awards.

Cast: Joshua Bell; Alex Castello; Casey Elder; Zufi Emerson; Stefanie Lekkas; Isha Menon; Genevieve Phipps; Aseniya Rambukwella; and Mia Tuco.
