YOUTH COMPANY CALL OUT
We are looking for 2 more creative youth companies from the genre of circus, dance, physical theatre or cross art form to bring a performance piece to TILT 16!
We are seeking pieces between 10 and 30 mins in length, to be performed as part of our Young People's Performance Night at Birmingham Rep on Thursday 21st July.
We would like to include a varied programme that reflects the cultural mix of the city using either physical theatre, dance, aerial or ground based circus skills. The piece needs to be innovative and creative and be performed to a professional standard.
The piece should have no, or minimal set as turn around time is very quick between companies. Any equipment rigging or lighting requirements can be accommodated and will be pre-rigged prior to rehearsal.
We are particularly interested in hearing from culturally diverse groups or those with, or working with, young people with disabilities.All performers must be under 21 years old.
Onsite rehearsal: Wednesday 20th July evening (times allocated from 5pm onwards)
Performance: Thursday 21st July 6.30-9.30pm

To make an application please tell us:
1) About your company
2) About your show
3) How many young people are involved and the age range.
4) Your website address and any links to videos of your work or images to support your application.
Deadline for applications is 1st June 2016
If Selected we will want to visit you either to attend a rehearsal or to see a training session. If you require any further information please contact us.
Currently there is no fee available for this project, but we have applied for a small commission for each company in the range of £300-£500. This is entirely dependent on a successful funding application, and groups should be eager to perform without the commision money.
