A new project working with teenagers in Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield & London. Get your freak on, Fam.

I am out here looking for you

Are you a person of colour, aged between 14 and 16? Do you identify as a woman or girl?

Or does this sound like a family member, friend or pupil?

Do you love music, dancing, design, performing or showing off? Are you dreaming of a future when all of us are free?

and most importantly…

Are you wanting to get your freak on? Cus I’m looking for you.

Over the next year, we are going to be working in Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield to select a group of awesome, exciting, radical young people to make some performance with. We’re talking dance marathons, live music videos and games to be played across city streets.


You can sign up to the project by completing this form here.

You’ll work with a team of choreographers, performance artists, musicians and designers to make something with all of the energy and excitement of an old school Missy E video, meeting new friends and imaging a world that is radically different.

If this sounds like you, or someone you know, GET IN TOUCH by contacting us on [email protected]

All workshops are free to take part in.
