Contact Young Company, our Manchester Theatre Award-winning young ensemble, started work on this show in April/May 2020.
The director for You’re a Vision is Richard DeDomenici. The assistant director is Amy Vreeke and the lead artist is Tammy Reynolds.
‘You’re a Vision’ is, of course, a reference to the Eurovision Song Contest. In Richard’s own words, the show will:
Present Eurovision as you’ve never seen it before, exploring what it tells us about community, our British identity, and our place in Europe.
You’re a Vision was due to be the first show in Contact’s Space One after our planned reopening in September 2020. However, our refurbishment work, rehearsals and much more has stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so CYC are now exploring how to develop You’re A Vision into a digital experience.
Please watch this space for more details!
CORONAVISION SONG CONTEST
CYC were planning to create content to celebrate the 65th Eurovision Song Contest, taking place in Rotterdam on 16 May. After Eurovision 2020 was cancelled, Richard DeDomenici took to Facebook to create his own alternative ‘Coronavision Song Contest.’ You can read more about that here.
