Ignition for Women

Please note, we have had a change of venue for the Trial Workshops on Sat 30 March. Trials will now be held at Unicorn Theatre, 147 Tooley St, London, SE1 2HZ.

We're looking for the next generation of female theatremakers. If you identify as female, you live in London and you're aged 16-20 then this is for you.

We're thrilled to announce that our flagship Ignition programme will be running a pilot for women this Spring. Ignition is Frantic Assembly's free movement and theatre project, designed to seek out talent in unexpected places. This April we want to bring together a dynamic group of women from across London 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 in London 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.

The project will run from 13 - 18 April, with performances on 17 & 18 April.

Check out the link below to sign up to our free Trial workshops on Saturday 30th March at Unicorn Theatre.

For more information on the project or if you're a school or community group and you'd like a free taster workshop, please contact Maya Pindar on Maya@franticassembly.co.uk or call 020 7841 3115.
