Junction Young Company

Junction Young Company is back!

Junction Young Company (JYC) is an advanced training programme for committed performers aged 14 to 21 that provides an opportunity to work with innovative directors, theatre companies and visiting artists. The Company will develop skills in a wide variety of theatrical conventions and styles, culminating in an innovative public performance on the J2 stage. Previously JYC have collaborated with Forced Entertainment, Gecko Theatre, Made in China, Dancing Brick, Breach Theatre and many other incredible companies.
