Young Associate Artists & Young Cast Auditions

3 April 2018

New Adventures is currently in the process of creating a major new production and in January 2018 three Young Associate Artists were recruited to work alongside our creative team. We are now looking for 150 young dancers who will have the opportunity to perform at their local theatre on our UK tour.

We are pleased to introduce our Young Associate Artists following a call-out to choreographers, costume & set designers and lighting designers across the UK in December 2017. 

The three associates will be working with our award-winning creative team Matthew Bourne, Etta Murfitt (Associate Artistic Director), Lez Brotherston (Set & Costume) and Paule Constable (Lighting) on the creation of a new production.

Matthew Bourne said today:

“We are looking forward to working with our Young Associate Artists on this major new production that will offer them the chance to work alongside our world class Associate Artists and give them invaluable experience and insight into how we create a New Adventures production.
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”        

The talent search for the young people to perform in this brand new production alongside New Adventures dancers is now underway. 

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. We are searching for the next generation of dancers with exceptional technique, powerful performance skills and a passion for storytelling to work with New Adventures over the course of 2018 and 2019.

The choreography will demand the young cast to work at a professional standard; technically and creatively. Dancers must be aged between 16 and 19 on 1 February 2019.
