Hope Street and the Bluecoat present...

Sense & Sustainability
A 3 hour interactive performance extravaganza, taking over the Bluecoat's much loved spaces in new and unexpected ways, this event will discombobulate your senses and sensibilities.  Directed by Cocoloco (who turned the Unity Theatre "Upside Down, Wrong Way Round"), in collaboration with Designer Lois Maskell and digital artists Draw & Code, and featuring Hope Street's Emerging Artists, this immersive theatre show will take you on a cliff walk to the very edge of our civilisation in crisis.

From a world where Alice in Wonderland meets Clockwork Orange, performance troupe Cocoloco presents raucous, hilarious and ever so slightly bent theatre.  This is cabaret performance and street theatre with a twist.  Cocoloco's work has been described as "the high art of madness to perfection", as they delve into David Lynch's notebook and present Salvador Dali-esque, truly bizarre street theatre.  A performance company with a love of the unexpected, Cocoloco brings anarchic, eye-catching, quirky and wildly funny peripatetic performance to theatre festivals throughout the world!

Draw & Code have worked on star-studded multi-media stage productions, created websites with turnovers of millions and with years of experience developing websites, apps, mobile games, animation, 3D rendering and immersive technologies like augmented reality, they are the complete digital creative agency.

Are you aged 10 - 18 years? Do you live in Everton? Looking for something to do? If YES, then this is for you!
The Trailblazers project creates exciting and interesting activities for young people. In the past, we've done free-running (parkour), drama and film making. This year, Trailblazers will take place in the evenings after school, starting in September 2014. The exact dates and activity programme are stil being worked on but we'll post details here soon.
We deliver the sessions in Everton so they're easy to get to. And we provide drinks and snacks to keep your energy up too! The activities usually run at least one evening a week for 8-10 weeks. The young people who come along often find that they get a chance to try an activity they hadn't thought of before or hadn't had a chance to try. For example, a number of the participants who tried free-running now attend regular sessions at a specialist centre in Dingle!
But don't take our word for it - find out what young people think about it:
'It was great fun!'
'It's made me more confident...'
If you'd like to chat to find out more about Trailblazers or would like to suggest some ideas for the activities you'd like us to deliver, please call 0151 708 8007 or email .
