The Ultimate Talent Show. How much can you give away until there’s nothing left to give?

Written by Edson Burton. Made by the young people of Bristol.

A brand new TV show pitches raw talents against each other. A contest that will see them pushed to the extreme. Will they find they have the edge or will they fall over the ledge?

Be witness to the madness that ensues. Watch the TV show live on stage, vote for your favourite contestant and help them make their dreams come true, but beware, there may be some sacrifices along the way as you tap, swipe, like and share their destiny.

Led by Creative Youth Network, in partnership with ArnolfiniRISE Youth Dance, Bath Spa University and Studio 7, The Edge is an immersive live performance that explores the heights and depths of the ‘reality’ fame machine: wealth, greed, and the need to be better than you are.
