Take part in International Festival's Five Telegrams

The Edinburgh International Festival will open on 3 August 2018 with the Aberdeen Standard Investments Opening Event: Five Telegrams - and you could be a part of it!

Five Telegrams will be a spectacular free outdoor digital performance celebrating Scotland’s Year of Young People and reflecting on the centenary of the end of the Great War.

As part of the show, the Edinburgh International Festival needs 250 young people (16-26) to be part of a flashmob group that will perform some singing and basic movement on the night.

You don't need experience, you'll be coached by choreographer Nathan Clarke (who has also worked with the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen, Rihanna and One Direction), and you'll be wearing amazing outfits designed by students from Edinburgh's College of Art!

Applications to take part in Five Telegrams close on Friday 20 July
