Curve Community Company (CCC) is an exciting new group for anyone aged over 19 who would like to work with other like-minded adults to create a new original production for a Summer performance at Curve.
The group is open to anyone with some experience in performing – be it Acting, Musical Theatre, Dance, or Music. We will form an ensemble drawing on the different skills of the group to devise and rehearse a cross-artform performance piece.
Rather than working on an existing script, the group will research Leicester specific stories to create a new performance with local interest. This could be anything – a response to the city now, an adaptation of a historical story, an imagining of the future – the group and their Director will work together to decide and devise the production.
How much does it cost?
CCC costs £90 per term. A number of full or half bursaries are available.
When are applications open?
Applications for CCC are currently closed.
For more information, contact the Participation and Learning team at Curve: [email protected]
When does CCC meet?
The group will meet every Wednesday night 6 – 9pm during school term times, to keep in line with our Young Company provision.
Do I have to audition?
No, but there is an introductory group aptitude workshop session which is a chance for prospective applicants to decide if the group is for them. If possible we will take everyone, but depending on numbers there may be a selection element to this workshop.
Existing CYC members between 19-26 who have become too old for CYC due to the lowering of the upper age limit will be guaranteed a place, but must apply.
What do I get from joining?
The chance to work on an inspirational, high quality original production, developing existing skills in a professional environment.
The chance to work with artists from different disciplines
The opportunity to perform at Curve, in a production supported by professional Technical and Artistic staff.
