Hijinx Academy at Unity Festival.

2022 marks 10 years since our first Academy was formed! It also marks the 10th edition of our Unity Festival, so it’s a pretty significant one for us. This year, as part of the Unity Festival, our Academies will all be creating special performances to be premiered as part of the festival, using our iconic pink suitcase as inspiration. 

 

Our two South-based groups will be working with cheeky dance theatre and performance group, Kitsch & Sync Collective, in the creation of an exciting performance to be premiered during the Cardiff leg of the festival.

The remainder of our South based Actors, will be joining the residency with playful and exploratory Bristol-based theatre company Ramshacklicious. The residency will be part of a larger project of the company’s called Club Supreme, and will be taking place during the two-week build-up to the festival; the result will be performed as part of the festival on the 24th and 25th June.  

Our North Academy will be working with freelance movement artist Angharad Harrop on a new performance. 

Our West Academy will be working with our West Hub Coordinator (Freelance) Crisian Emanuel and freelance tutor Angharad James in the creation of a piece to be premiered in Llanelli on the 2nd July, and our Mid Academy will be working with freelance tutor Cath Rigler in the creation of a performance to also be performed during the Llanelli leg.
