Join the movement in CYC's first ever fully digital show. A fast, funny and frequently frisky experience that changes with you, the audience.

Want to join ‘the movement’ but not sure where to start? Join Contact Young Company to investigate the ins and outs of social movements, and the tools you need to re-imagine the future.

Contact Young Company are working with artists Amy Vreeke, Keisha Thompson and Javaad Alipoor to create a new piece of interactive, digital work that is decidedly frisky!

You’ll have the opportunity to create your own toolkit as you watch. What will you put in yours?

Social movements are fast-moving, ever-evolving spaces. Much like those movements, The Starter Kit has been growing and changing throughout the time CYC have been working on it. It might even change mid-performance…

Both Saturday 7 November performances will be live captioned.

This is one of 40 new projects taking place in and around 40 arts centres as part of Here and Now, a national and local celebration of culture within communities. Supported by Arts Council England and Future Arts Centres, marking the National Lottery’s 25th birthday.
