Ignition Tasters & Trials


We are heading up and down the UK to find this year's Ignition Company. We're looking for the next generation of performers. Have you got what it takes?

Taster Workshops

The taster workshops are to give you an introduction to the way we work. Come and try out our fast, risk-taking, physical theatre. 


Come to one of our trials for a chance to join the Ignition 2018 Company. You don't need to prepare anything, just turn up, have fun and be yourself. We're looking for young men with different backgrounds, skills and stories and no experience of doing drama or dance is necessary. 

To book a place on either the Taster Workshops or Trials you should use the links below. Places are limited to 30 places per session. 

By coming to a Trial you will be automatically entered into our Back Up programme which involves coming back together in your local venue for a free weekend with Frantic Assembly.
