Boys and young men aged 11–22 from all across the Highlands are being offered the opportunity to develop their strength and endurance through a series of FREE, physically challenging, high energy dance theatre workshops.

Hosted by world famous choreographer, Matthew Bourne’s company, New Adventures and it’s charitable education arm Re:Bourne, these workshops could lead to the unique opportunity of being selected to perform alongside the cast of professional dancers at Eden Court in the critically acclaimed adaptation of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies.

Workshops have already been offered to schools but can also be made available to any other community groups this month who might be interested.

Open auditions for boys and young men aged 11–22 to appear alongside the professional cast in Lord of the Flies (at Eden Court from May 28th to 31st) will be held on Sunday March 30th at Eden Court and Saturday April 12th (venue TBC).

This nationwide project has come to the Highlands to not only inspire, uncover and nurture existing talent but to challenge the stereotypes and break down barriers to male participation in dance. No previous experience is necessary.
