under 25Troupers- Be Part of the Art

Troupers is SeaChange Arts year-round scheme designed to help local people gain a unique experience within the arts. As part of Troupers tailored journey participants will be invited to special events, consult on the SeaChange Arts programme and marketing and work with leading artists and professionals. As part of Contact Zones the Troupers and Drillaz Circus School will join forces to go back stage and find out everything there is to know about the Contact Zones artists and performances. Over the 3 days of the Out There Festival the Troupers and Drillaz will watch all 4 of the Contact Zones performances, document the shows through photography and film making and write a review of each show. Everything they document will then be available on the Contact Zones website and blog for people from across Europe to engage with.
The Troupers and Drillaz will be offered a unique training experience as part of the Under 25 Programme and receive some training from acclaimed UK critics and writers on Friday 18th September on how to write a review for an outdoor performance.
The young people from the local schools who take part in the circus workshops will also be invited to attend the Contact Zones shows, read the reviews and participate in the Contact Zones blog sharing their options and views.
