Ignition for Men

To be a part of Ignition, no experience is necessary. We're particularly looking for young men who haven't taken part in drama or dance before.

This year we have broadened the age-range, to include young men aged 16-24.

Taster and Trial Workshops are delivered with regional arts partners across the UK, and 12 of the brightest and bravest young men are selected to form the Ignition Company. The company will come together in London to live and work together for 7 days to create an original performance with Frantic Assembly Directors.

Ignition also includes a year-round Re-Ignite programme which continues to train, mentor and signpost opportunities with Frantic Assembly throughout the UK.


Be part of Ignition 2019

It's a simple 3-stage process to get involved:

1. Sign-up for a (free) Taster Workshop at your local venue

2. If you enjoy that, take part in a (free) Trial Workshop

3. 12 young men will be chosen to take part in the week-long Ignition Intensive in London. (It's also free to attend, and travel, accommodation and food will be provided.)
