Confederation Centre Young Company Now Accepting Video Auditions for THE RISING!

-Young Company, in partnership with the TD Ready Commitment, will perform this summer at the Centre-

Young performers from across Canada are invited to submit video auditions for the 2021 season of the Confederation Centre Young Company, in partnership with the TD Ready Commitment. The season will run on-site from June to August, as a proud part of The Charlottetown Festival at Confederation Centre of the Arts.

This summer, the Young Company will present THE RISING!, exploring moments where society has come together to stand up for civil and judicial rights.

A universal language, music transcends geographic and cultural barriers and has played an essential role in protests for generations. Weaving songs from such artists as Tracey Chapman, Lady Gaga, Macklemore, CCR, and Bob Marley, The Rising! is an inspiring, high-energy journey about striving for a better and more equitable humanity.

Performers between the ages of 18 and 30 are encouraged to apply to be a part of this important group of storytellers. Whether one’s stories come from spoken word or song, traditional or modern dance, the Centre is looking for voices of all backgrounds to come together on P.E.I. for an unforgettable experience in the arts.

“The Young Company is a fantastic growth opportunity for performing artists from across Canada,” says Adam Brazier, artistic director of performing arts. “The program is both an exercise in collaboration and creativity, and an excellent way to explore social justice through the arts, from a diverse range of voices and experiences.”

Rehearsals for the Young Company begin in mid-June and run through August 21. As it has for almost three decades, the program doubles as a summer training intensive, featured within The Charlottetown Festival.

Submissions are welcome from people of all cultures, genders, and identities, with varying degrees of experience. Applicants are reminded that if they play a musical instrument or speak languages other than English, this ability should be showcased in their video audition. Traditional songs, dances, and speeches are also welcomed and encouraged.

Applicants must be eligible to work in Canada. Full details for applications and video submissions can be found at www.confederationcentre.com/auditions.
