Performance

Performers aged 14-25 take to the main stage at The New Theatre to present an exuberant, visually striking variety show.  Come and witness the culmination of an intense week of mentoring from industry professionals.  Young musicians, dancers, actors and writers will work in collaboration with the New Theatre, Arts Active, Earthfall Dance, Community Music Wales, Literature Wales and other experienced arts practitioners to create an experimental, genre-defying show.  Punctuated with routines from young performers at No Fit State Circus, and directed by the award-winning James Williams (Flown, Hitch, My Life in CIA), Performance promises to be a breath taking experience.

There are three ways to get involved:

  1. Curate.  Are you interested in what goes on behind the scenes?  We’re looking for a small, dedicated team who will work together and learn new skills, as the Performance Steering Group.  Being a member of the steering group will involve a few meetings in the months leading up to the show, learning the stages to producing a large-scale show.  Be an advocate for your art form, gain valuable industry experience and give us your opinions.  If you’re applying to perform, we would welcome your application to be part of the steering group as well.  Interested?  Click here.
  1. Perform.  If you’re aged 14-25 and interested in performance – be it music, dance, spoken word or acting – then get involved.  It’s free to participate.  Join us from the 1st to the 6th of August for an intensive week, working with industry professionals towards a performance on the New Theatre stage.  Interested?  Click here.
