Junction Young Company (JYC)

Inclusive Programme for Young People

Junction Young Company (JYC) is an inclusive programme for young people aged 14 – 21, who are interested in and excited by live performance.

JYC participants are supported by professional artists and theatre companies, developing a range of theatrical skills, and annually the ensemble reates an original, devised performance which is showcased at Cambridge Junction.

Previously JYC have collaborated with Forced Entertainment, Gecko Theatre, Made in China, Dancing Brick, Breach Theatre, Bar Groisman and many other professional theatre companies.

JYC offers a safe and playful space to express yourself, connect with others and be heard. There is no audition process and no need for any previous theatrical experience.

As a collective, JYC will make decisions on content, creative direction and public performances.

We are excited to announce the facilitators for the new year of JYC starting in September 2023. Bar Groisman and Cassandra Hercules!
