    Scottish Premiere
    Contact Young Company (Manchester)

    Brightlight was the first major study of its kind on specialist cancer care in England for young people. Its findings and young patients’ perspectives combine to inspire this original performance.

    As Brightlight was developed by young people for young people, this confident and energetic Contact Young Company piece is a fitting artistic response to what it’s like for those living with a teenage cancer diagnosis.

    This performance is part of Chrysalis festival 2017 /@YTArtsScot / #ChrysalisFest / @ContactMcr
