A major new dance production featuring some of the country’s top performers, with young people from across the region, has been unveiled.
Fast-emerging junior talent will get the chance to share the stage with professional dancers from acclaimed choreographer Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures company in a production of Lord Of The Flies, which is coming to Norwich Theatre Royal in November 2014.
It aims to help find the next generation of dancers and choreographers, and the search is on for people from East Anglia to help with the search.
Two dance ambassadors are needed to work alongside the theatre’s education department on this project, which is being supported by Arts Council England.
Jason Raper, Norwich Theatre Royal’s education manager, said: “The ideal candidates are early career dancers who can inspire boys and young men to participate in the project, whatever their level of experience or background.”
“We are looking for people who can demonstrate their passion and active interest in choreography, and be able to deliver Lord Of The Flies workshops in the lead-up to the Norwich Theatre Royal production and beyond.”
They would need to be over 18, be able to work in partnership with both the theatre and New Adventures’ educational arm Re:Bourne, and have excellent communications and networking skills, as well as a dance background.
Candidates will also need to attend a week-long training boot camp in mid-February and be able to work evenings and weekends.
Tickets for the production of Lord Of The Flies have not yet gone on sale.
