YAM Producers Forum

The YAMsession Producers Forum turns good productions into great ones!

The YAMsession Producers Forum brings together a local young audiences production with international producers and performance experts.

The production first performs live for the YAMsession with their existing work

After they are whisked away by the producers and over the course of the next 2 days they work together to make a 'new' production

 

It is presented again on the final day. The whole process is followed by the audience who is encouraged to give input and reflections on what transforms a good production into a great one!
