Sampled Festival, The Junction

A Younger Theatre are teaming up with The Junction in Cambridge for their annual Sampled Festival to present a Digital Documentation. The Junction Sampled is a festival of performance celebrating contemporary work from some of the best experimental theatre makers in the East and beyond. Taking over The Junction for two whole days, artists such as Little Bulb Theatre, Chris Thorpe, Andy Field, Bryony Kimmings, Action Hero and so many more will be offering festival goers live performances, installations, games and adventures, and A Younger Theatre will be documenting the whole thing.

We’re looking for a team of digital enthusiasts who want to explore specific journeys through the Sampled Festival through digital documentation using A Younger Theatre as a platform. Documentation will take place through live blogs, videos and audio recordings and lots of photos. We’re keen to explore new ways of bringing a festival to an online audience who can’t be present at the festival.

What You’ll Get:

– You’ll get to work with A Younger Theatre’s Editor and Founder Jake Orr who has previously lived blogged The Old Vic New Voices’ 24 Hours Plays, and the Arts Council England’s State of the Arts Conference.
– You’ll get a free festival pass, digital equipment, and the chance to interview audience and theatre makers.
– You’ll get free food and the chance to work with The Junction.
– Travel expenses may be given too (TBC).
