Ignition for Women

Before the COVID-19 restrictions were introduced we were excited to be running our first nationwide programme of Ignition for Women in 2020, for young women aged 16-24. Unfortunately, following Government guidelines our plans are on hold for the time being. We hope to run the programme as soon as we can.

When we do we will be looking for the next generation of female theatre-makers.


Ignition is Frantic Assembly's free movement and theatre project, designed to seek out talent in unexpected places. We want to bring together a dynamic group of women from across the country with different backgrounds, skills and stories.

No experience is necessary and we particularly look for young women who haven't taken part in drama or dance before.

Our high energy Taster and Trial workshops are delivered with partner venues around the country and 12 of the brightest and bravest young women are then be selected to form the Ignition Company. Over 6 days you work together to create an original performance with Frantic Assembly Directors.

Keep an eye out for more information when Ingition will be running again, as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime you can register your contact details to be kept in the loop with any other updates.
