Ignition for Women


We will be running a nationwide programme of Ignition for Women in 2020, and this year we have broadened the age-range, to include young women aged 16-24.

We will be looking for the next generation of female theatremakers. 

We're thrilled to announce that our flagship Ignition programme will be running a full length programme for women in 2020, alongside Ignition for Men. 

Ignition is Frantic Assembly's free movement and theatre project, designed to seek out talent in unexpected places. In 2020 we want to bring together a dynamic group of women from across the country with different backgrounds, skills and stories.

No experience is necessary and we're particularly looking for young women who haven't taken part in drama or dance before.

Our high energy Taster and Trial workshops will be delivered with partner venues around the country and 12 of the brightest and bravest young women will then be selected to form the Ignition Company. Over 6 days we'll work together to create an original performance with Frantic Assembly Directors.

Keep an eye out for more information next spring and contact Alisha Artry on ignition@franticassembly.co.uk or call 020 7841 3115 if you have any questions.
