YOUNG PEOPLE'S DANCE CALL OUTS
Would you like be in a professional dance show as part of Kensington and Chelsea Festival?
2Faced Dance Company and Kensington and Chelsea Festival 2022
Participant Call Out
Where All Paths Lead is a new outdoor dance show from 2Faced Dance company. They are looking for approx. 20 participants age 12+, with different life experiences and movement abilities for an exciting outdoor dance performance taking place this July as part of the Kensington and Chelsea Festival. The performance of Where All Paths Lead, explores how our bodies work together to form identities and communities and features the company’s 6 male dancers and 1 live drummer. Using a range of dance styles including contemporary, parkour, breakdance and contact work, the piece sees the dancers explore the different pathways that we journey through life, ultimately bringing us back home. There are two sections of the work which will be devised and created by the project participants, alongside the company and then performed at the Festival in July. Rehearsals will be relaxed, fun and friendly and we welcome both those with lots of dance/movement experience and those with very little. All participants will be provided with a costume for the performances. 2Faced Dance staff are DBS checked.

Ockham's Razor and Kensington and Chelsea Festival 2022
Participant Call Out
Ockham's Razor are looking for a group of young performers from the local community to take part in their new outdoor show Public as part of Kensington and Chelsea Festival.
Participants should have experience or interest in circus, dance, martial arts, parkour or movement. You will take part in a free short workshop learning a movement sequence, led by choreographer Joel Daniel, and members of the company. The piece created will become part of the performance of Public, acting as a youth stage invasion!
Ockham’s Razor is an award-winning circus company that makes work that is arresting and entertaining. We specialise in discovering stories in the vulnerability, trust and reliance that are found in circus. www.ockhamsrazor.co.uk. Public is an outdoor performance piece about the use and ownership of public space. Urban public space has become increasingly colonised by corporations. Malls, town centres, arcades and transport hubs are owned by private interests with their own security and surveillance. In this landscape they set the rules of what is allowed and there is less space for young people to take up public space - to experiment, play and build social bonds with their peers. Play becomes risky and subversive.
