Tangled Feet - Collective Endeavour

Jen Rhodes from Leeds Arts Development team writes … .

As I am sure you will know, this summer Leeds is a host city for the Rugby World Cup 2015, with two key games taking place in September. To celebrate this  Leeds City Council has joined forces with Dep Arts to bring a number of interactive, innovative and city-wide experiences under the umbrella TRY. 

As part of this TRY cultural programme Tangled Feet are looking for 300 volunteers to perform in Collective Endeavour. One for each of the starting players at the Rugby World Cup 2015.

Volunteers will perform in a large scale piece of theatre about the power of teamwork and what can be achieved when people unite. It will be an unforgettable show in Millennium Square on Friday 25 September. 

We are asking for our key partners to help spread this message, and share with their networks this amazing chance for volunteers to be part of this brilliant opportunity.

Performers do not need to have any previous performance experience or training, just energy, humour and a willing attitude. They will perform simple movements to make large images for the audience, telling the story of community and teamwork. Volunteers would only need to attend 2 days of rehearsals in Leeds and the dress rehearsal.

I would be extremely grateful of you could help spread this message through your channels, and help us get behind this brilliant event. Full details on the event and how to sign up can be found at

 Get those arms and legs ready for a bit of collectivity!
