The work, which will premiere at Tramway in Glasgow before transferring to Berlin, explores ideas of cross-cultural identity, connection and belonging as they ask the question ‘what is the space between us?’.
The Glasgow performances, on 10 and 11 August, are taking place as part of Festival 2018, the dynamic cultural programme for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.
Junction 25 is an awarding-winning theatre company made of young people aged 11-18 based at Tramway, the leading international art space.

They will only meet twice in the run up to the show opening.
