To be a part of Ignition, no experience is necessary. We're particularly looking for young men who haven't taken part in drama or dance before.
This year we have broadened the age-range, to include young men aged 16-24.
Taster and Trial Workshops are delivered with regional arts partners across the UK, and 12 of the brightest and bravest young men are selected to form the Ignition Company. The company will come together in London to live and work together for 7 days to create an original performance with Frantic Assembly Directors.
Ignition also includes a year-round Re-Ignite programme which continues to train, mentor and signpost opportunities with Frantic Assembly throughout the UK.
