An Emerging Artists Production
Creative Electric, Young Scot Award Finalists 2014, are proud to present Wonder, an interactive theatre production aimed at audiences aged 16-22 years, opening April 30th at The Bongo Club Edinburgh as part of Bongo Lives and touring to North Berwick and Glasgow.
'I won't tell you what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse...'
Inspired by RJ Palacio's novel of the same name, Wonder explores themes of self and social awareness through participant?s stories. During development, Creative Electric held a series of social experiments that explored the impact of acts kindness. Heather Marshell, Creative Director:
"The company were surprised and delighted by peoples' reactions, so many people wanted to give hugs, share their stories and make a connection. Their reactions have helped shape our production."
Wonder has been informed by people from all walks of life who have dared to ask and answer the question ?What do you see when you look at me??
Wonder is a part of Creative Electric?s Emerging Artists Programme, funded by Creative Scotland, through which the company supports artists at the early stage of their career with paid work and mentoring. This is the company's third emerging artists production.
