This new work was developed with young people through drama and visual arts during a residency in Finland in November 2010. Members of our Youth Panel joined their Finnish counterparts for the premiere. Beginning was co-ordinated by EEA’s Andrew Siddall, directed by Alex Evans and designed by Patrick Bullock with a Finnish cast and production team.
