Eighteen Intro | Pilot Theatre

Eighteen Intro | Pilot Theatre


In 2018, Pilot Theatre launched Eighteen. A programme to give eighteen-year-olds in York the chance to share their experiences of the world. They asked us to think
about questions, such as what keeps us awake at night? What were we passionate about? What we were afraid of? And what we were excited about in the future? We developed ideas for short films
about things we cared about. – We worked with young people
from Portugal and Italy to make films in 24 hours and also made our own
films throughout the year. – We even asked other people
what they thought about – things we care about – to see how important they are to a wider society. – We’ve covered issues
from mental health to sexuality, – from the desire for motorbikes
to the need to travel – what we can learn from Shakespeare
to Brexit and beyond. – We’ve been allowed to talk
about ourselves in our voices, – in our own words
and show our view of the world undiluted. – These are our films!
