We work with Youth Theatre Arts Scotland as the main venue for Chrysalis Festival.

Chrysalis is a platform for ambitious performance by young theatre-makers. It showcases emerging talent, sparks critical debate and challenges perceptions of youth theatre.

The festival aims to:

  • Positively enhance the public perception of creative work by young people
  • Attract new audiences to youth theatre arts
  • Inspire and raise the aspirations of Scotland’s youth arts sector
  • Stimulate critical discussion

Chrysalis Festival will return to the Traverse in 2020.
