Performing Arts Studio Scotland at Edinburgh College in association with Plum Films and Grid Iron By HND Acting & Performance Graduating Class of 2021, Edinburgh College

Premieres Fri 14 May, 7.30pm

In a normal year, the HND Acting and Performance students of PASS would be busily rehearsing for performances of their showcase, full of excitement about presenting it to audiences in the Traverse Theatre. This, of course, is far from a normal year.

Unable to share their showcase with a live audience, the students were each charged with creating a 60-second film reflecting on the pertinent theme of being socially distant yet digitally close.

Together, their brilliant work, written, performed, and filmed themselves with graphics by HND Visual Communications students, gives a touching, funny and thought-provoking snapshot of student life in this most unusual year.

Join us for the premiere on Fri 14 May, 7.30pm on the Traverse Theatre's YouTube channel. The film will then be available to watch on-demand until midnight on Fri 28 May.
