In May and June of 2021, Stellar Quines worked in partnership with SHE Scotland and Stepping Stones to engage a group of women and girls aged between 14-26 to explore their experiences of COVID through theatre-making.
Funded by Inspiring Scotland, a series of creative workshops was developed to enable the young women to make new friends, build their confidence and address their emotional resilience, after a year of living through a pandemic, in a safe and supportive environment.
The workshops allowed them to be reflective whilst developing skills in writing, costume-making, directing and storytelling. The product of their work was a short film, Masquerade, shot on location in Muirhouse with the participants working alongside a director to realise their final vision.
