Contact Young Company (CYC) is Contact’s renowned, Manchester Theatre Award-winning young ensemble. CYC is made up of young performers, actors, dancers, musicians, stand-up comedians, poets and MCs.
Each year, the company creates brand-new professional standard shows in collaboration with major national and international artists, such as Forced Entertainment, Lies Pauwels, Stacey Makishi and Slung Low. Their shows are premiered in Manchester, and often then tour nationally to leading venues and festivals.
Following Contact and SICK! Festival’s co-production in October 2019, Contact Young Company will be taking a break while we prepare to move back into our building.
We’ll be auditioning new members in Autumn 2020, ready for the next Contact Young Company show which will take place in our newly transformed Oxford Road building.
