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.
A number of full or half bursaries are available.
When are applications open?
Applications for CCC are currently closed. We will be relaunching our Curve Community Company in early 2022, more information on how to apply will be available here.
For more information, contact the Creative Programmes team at Curve: [email protected]
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.
Free Curve 16 – 26 Membership offering a range of benefits and discounts (19-26 year olds only).
At least one free guest practitioner workshop.
