Audition Notice: New Adventures, Young Cast
17 April 2018
New Adventures is searching for the brightest young dance talent from across the UK to audition for the chance to perform in a major new work by Matthew Bourne.
New Adventures are searching for the next generation of young dancers with exceptional technique, powerful performance skills and a passion for storytelling to work over the course of 2018 and 2019 to become part of Bourne’s next major dance production. This unique opportunity will nurture and develop young talent prior to embarking on a career in dance.
Following the success of Lord of the Flies, in which the cast was made up of professional dancers and young men from the local community, this new production will feature both young women and men. 10 dancers will be chosen to perform on the main stage of their local theatre alongside New Adventures professional dancers.
Dancers must be aged between 16 and 19 on 1st February 2019 and will ideally have had at least 3 years of dance training or experience and a solid grounding in contemporary and classical technique, preferably from within CAT schemes or independent dance schools. New Adventures accept and celebrate that not everyone’s path into dance is traditional, so encourage applications from those with a natural gift and aptitude in dance and performance. Above all, applicants must be expressive, creative, dynamic performers and actors.
CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES Monday 23rd April 2018.
This opportunity is only for applicants who reside in the UK. Please note that auditions for more theatres will be announced very soon.
