David Young

29 Mar 2017

David has been involved in performance arts since he was 12, when he joined Remix, an inclusive arts company. The Remix performed on Weymouth beach for the opening of the Olympic Games sailing events. David was also given the opportunity to perform his poetry for the celebrations of the Paralympic Games with the Seen but Seldom Heard voices project.
Merging his passion for performance and poetry, David joined Extraordinary Bodies Young Artists in 2013. Dave co-wrote and performed in Touched for the Unlimited Festival on the South Bank, London, in 2014.
David became a poet activist and associate artist for Diverse City and worked with the Complete Freedom of Truth International Arts Project, which he continues to do.
In 2015, David joined Graeae’s Ensemble, a professional training opportunity for emerging disabled artists.
David performed an improvisation to Terry Riley’s In C with Extraordinary Bodies at Colston Hall alongside the British Paraorchestra in 2016, and the Doing Things Differently Festival saw David leading integrated performance workshops for theatre practitioners and performing in the State of the Nation.
He is very much looking forward to working with Ramps on the Moon and the New Wolsey Theatre in this new production of Tommy.
