Curve Community Company

Curve Community Company 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 will cost £90 per term. A number of full or half bursaries will be available to apply for.

If possible we will take everyone, but depending on numbers there may be a selection element to this workshop.
