9 early career street dance and/or circus artists for an international hip hop dance/circus production
Union Black by Far From The Norm is a new show which explores football culture and politics through the lens of hip hop dance and circus. It is being created in partnership with Far From The Norm, Crying Out Loud, Subtopia (Sweden), Cork Midsummer Festival (Ireland) and Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde (France).
There have already been two R&D periods in France and Sweden and we are looking for artists to join the company for the London performances in summer 2018.
