For the second year running, SDTN is funding nine delegate places (three staff CPD pathways and six student delegate pathways) to attend the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival

You will also have the opportunity to meet members of the Imaginate Team during the day. Your delegate pass will also provide you with access to any of the other delegate events throughout the week.

In Conversation – Baba Yaga
We Come From Far, Far Away
A Feast of Bones is a musical fable from Theatre Lovett featuring live music and an original score. The company takes their inspiration from the story of Henny Penny, paralleling this story of five birds who joyously march towards an unforeseen doom with the jingoistic march of Europe towards a ‘glorious’ war in 1914.
An uproarious musical journey to the top floor and beyond, Baba Yaga is a brand new take on an old Russian folktale co-created by director Rosemary Myers and two unique and celebrated artists from opposite ends of the globe; Shona Reppe (Scotland) and Christine Johnston (Australia).
We Come from Far, Far Away is a theatre production based on true stories shared by young refugees aged 13 – 18 yrs who have arrived alone to seek asylum. The participants’ stories are troublesome and unbelievable, but as with most young people, they are filled with energy, life and hope for the future.
