Frantic Assembly’s Ignition is back!

Frantic Assembly will be returning to London to find this year’s Ignition Company. East London Dance is excited to be joining the annual search for the next generation of performers.

Have you got what it takes? 

Are you male? Aged 16-20? Are you risk-taking and energetic? Do you want to be challenged and achieve what you never thought possible? Then this is for you!

As well as visiting London, Frantic will be travelling to other cities in the UK to find 12 of the brightest and bravest young men to form the Ignition 2017 Company, a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills, create original work and perform to a live audience. 

Taster workshops are an opportunity to try out Frantic Assembly’s high-energy, risk-taking, physical theatre. Trial workshops are designed to build on skills learnt in the Tasters and discover the Ignition 2017 Company. Both workshops are completely FREE and you don’t need any experience to take part, just bring energy and personality!

By coming to a Trial workshop, you are also automatically part of the Back Up programme, meaning further training with Frantic Assembly and other exciting opportunities with East London Dance, just for you, even if you don’t get into the company!

Taster: Sunday 17 September at 11am or 2pm
