We welcome performers of various backgrounds: dance, theatre, music, visual art, performance, martial arts, voice work, traditional/folk dance, circus, urban dance, etc., and anyone comfortable and keen to work with physical movement and their voice in a frontal/performative context and as part of a group.

Basic movement coordination is essential, as is the pleasure of being on stage. A diverse age spectrum is welcome.
