Contact Young Company (CYC) is Contact’s renowned, award-winning young ensemble.

CYC is made up of young actors, dancers, musicians, singers, stand-up comedians, poets and MCs. The company aims to place access and diversity at its heart.

Each year CYC creates brand new shows in collaboration with major national and international artists such as Forced Entertainment, Highrise Theatre, Stacey Makishi and Slung Low.

Contact is now recruiting for the next cohort of company members, who will work towards creating a show that will premiere in Contact’s newly refurbished building in October 2021, on our main stage.

The show will include elements of dance and physical theatre, and feature stunning lighting and projections. It will be directed by Contact’s Artistic Director Matt Fenton, choreographer Yandass Ndlovu and dramaturg Sam Holley-Horseman.

We are keen to work with people who are comfortable working with movement or dance and with all physicalities. We want to make the arts inclusive, diverse and accessible to all. We actively encourage applications from anyone who identifies as D/deaf and/or disabled and/or neurodivergent. All access needs can be met at all stages of the process.

Interested? If you’re 15-25, book your audition slot to be a part of Contact Young Company’s upcoming performances here.
