The talent search for the young people to perform in this brand new production alongside New Adventures dancers is now underway.
New Adventures are searching for the next generation of young dancers with exceptional technique, powerful performance skills and a passion for storytelling to work with them over the course of 2018 and 2019 to become part of Matthew Bourne’s next major dance production. This unique opportunity will nurture and develop young talent prior to embarking on a career in dance.
New Adventures are looking for 10 dancers to perform in Bradford on the Alhambra Theatre main stage alongside New Adventures professional dancers. Dancers must be aged between 16 and 19 on 1 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. They do, however, 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, they must be expressive, creative, dynamic performers and actors.
Matthew Bourne says:
“We are now on a countrywide search for exceptional young dance talent from all backgrounds to join us in each of the cities where we will be staging this bold new production. This unique project builds on the ground-breaking tour of Lord of the Flies that proved to be successful in 2014.
Only this time we are looking for young men and women who dream of a career in dance to join the professional dancers of New Adventures as an integral part of our latest production, as it tours across the UK.”
It is essential that all applicants are able to commit to all of the dates of this project. All of the project dates are outlined on the New Adventures website where dancers can register for local auditions: new-adventures.net/young-cast
