Only seven people were chosen in Australia to take part in the performance.

The locals will have an opportunity to work with other young performers from across the Commonwealth.

Scarlett Yakovina (18) Madison Royal (17), Jacob Horne (18), and Ruby Liddelow (19) are all from the Riptide Contemporary Youth Performance Company at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.

The group will travel to Glasgow in July to take part in The Tin Forest production with the International Performing Company.

The performance is in conjunction with the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Participants will work with professional directors, creative specialists, composers, designers, choreographers and technicians to create interactive installations and site-responsive street theatre.

‘The opportunity to be a part of an international performance company is extremely valuable for my creative development as a local performer and director,’ Ms Yakovina said.

The Lesley Couzens Art Fellowship has helped the performers with their travel costs.

The foundation helps young locals pursue their aspirations.
