Creative Scene are giving young people from North Kirklees a unique opportunity to learn parkour from the original performance-parkour company, The Urban Playground Team.

Combining authentic French free-running with dance and physical theatre, The Urban Playground Team need local people aged 14-25 to be part of their next performance-parkour production, STEAM. No previous experience is necessary.

In James Bond-style stunts, The Urban Playground Team will run, jump and climb on, off and through a skeletal steam train in scenes inspired by action movies during the public performances on Friday September 4 at Batley and Saturday September 5 at Dewsbury train stations.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a high profile company, The Urban Playground Team, who have featured on shows like BBC’s Blue Peter, Sky1’s Got To Dance and in the feature documentary Come Fly With Us.

Not only will you get a taste of performance-parkour, you’ll also get to create and perform a scene inspired by our local area and share it as part of the public performances.

To be eligible to participate you must be aged between 14-25 and be available Saturday 23 – Wednesday 26 August for rehearsals and Thursday 3 – Saturday 5 September for performances.

Creative Scene will pay the travel costs for any budding free-runners who live in WF12-17, BD11 and BD19.

Contact Vicky Holliday on 01924 437966 or at vicky@creativescene.org.uk to take part.
