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.

They are searching for the next generation of young dancers with exceptional technique, powerful performance skills and a passion for storytelling to work with the company over the course of 2018 and 2019 as 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.

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, preferable from within CAT schemes or independent dance schools. New Adventures 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.

Professional Curve Productions

For our Curve Productions we work with agents and advertise opportunities through Spotlight.

Each production’s director is responsible for the casting of that show, helped either by a freelance Casting Director or our Assistant Producer. Casting is dependent on the requirements of the production (large musical/small play) and the type of show we are producing (In-house/Co-production).

Generally, we do not hold ‘open auditions’ at Curve theatre. However, casting breakdowns are often posted via Spotlight and sent to agents who then submit their suggestions. Castings and meetings usually take place in London.

Please bear in mind that as we do not have a specific Casting Department and due to the large number of enquiries we receive, it is not always possible to reply to every correspondence. We do keep submissions and CVs that are sent to us on file, however it is much more beneficial to apply for a specific role in a production rather than just any production across the season.
