Althea Young

Althea Young: (She/Hers) Althea Young is a Glasgow based contemporary performer and former circus artist. She has performed with various circus collectives including Acrosanct, Flynn Creek Circus, Acrobatic Conundrum, and Alter Circus. She was also AYCO’s first Youth Leadership Award Winner. After practicing circus throughout most of her youth, she went on to move to the UK and study a degree in Contemporary Performance Practice at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she wrote her research dissertation about transcending the 'medical body’ through sensory movement practices. Currently in her studio work she aims to connect with her audiences in contexts where connection seems impossible, using accessible technology such as phone calls to challenge what it means to touch, be with, and conceptualise our position in relation to one another in space and time. Outside of the theatre, Althea facilitates and collaborates with communities in medical contexts, focussing mainly on radical dance practices in hospices and geriatric facilities.
