For Festival 2024, we're excited to be working with formidable touring theatre companies Headlong and Frantic Assembly as we partner together in a major collaboration to present a new play by Laura Lomas in Spring 2024 in the Minerva Theatre.

We are recruiting 10 young people to work with us on this play who will form the Movement Ensemble of ‘party goers’ in the production. This is a paid professional opportunity for 18-25 year olds.

We are looking for committed and energetic people with an interest in movement. You don’t need to be a dancer but you can be brave, authentic, and keen to collaborate within an exciting creative process. You may not have the experience but you might just have the skillset we need for this physically dynamic role. This is a rare opportunity to be part of a very exciting professional creative process between three of the UK’s leading theatre producers.

We encourage people from all backgrounds to apply, we are particularly interested in hearing from those who might traditionally face barriers into the performing arts industry because of their class, gender, sexuality, disability, ethnicity etc.

Frantic Assembly are holding 2 days of auditions; in London on Tuesday 13 February and in Chichester at Chichester Festival Theatre on Wednesday 14 February.

Full commitment will be required from Monday 15 April to Saturday 1 June 2024. Rehearsals in London w/c 15 April
Rehearsals in Chichester w/c 22 April
Tech week in Chichester w/c 29 April
Performances in Chichester from 3 May – 1 June 2024
