Inside every young persons brain, 86 billion neurons connect, crash, collide and clash to cause daily chaotic and exhilarating changes; a hive of constant activity, growing, evolving, changing.

Brainstorm is a fast paced, dynamic and physical theatre show created for and by young people, exploring how their brains work and why they're designed to be imperfectly perfect.
Using script developed by Ned Glasier, Emily Lim and Company Three in collaboration with neuroscientists, Director Helen Ferguson and an ensemble cast of young people delve into their personal experiences to explore their relationships with their parents and themselves, whilst making sense of the world around them.

Brainstorm is a poignant, honest, funny and thought-provoking show that showcases young talent from across the Tyne Valley, and challenges you to see young people and their brains in new ways.
