Youth Company Call Out
After successfully running Birmingham’s first Aerial and Physical Theatre festival, last year we are now well underway, with support from Arts Council England, with TILT 17.
This week long festival from 17th-23rd July includes, masterclasses in various skills, free outdoor performances from renowned companies, a performance night with a variety of performers and an afternoon dedicated to work by Young People.
We are looking for creative youth companies to bring a piece between 10 and 30 mins long, to our event at the West Midlands Creation Centre on Sunday 23rd July to be programmed alongside our Young Rogues and Young Aerialists.. All performers must be under 21. Quick turn around times means the piece will have no, or minimal set. Any pre rigging requirements can be done the night before. We are particularly interested in hearing from culturally diverse groups or those with, or working with, young people with disabilities.
We will be creating a varied programme reflecting the cultural mix of the city using either physical theatre, aerial or ground based circus skills. The piece needs to be innovative and creative and be performed to a professional standard.
