InFlight Application Form
An exciting FREE training opportunity!
Learn new skills, collaborate with artists and extend the boundaries of your own work.
In Flight is a professional development project for people already involved in physical sports or art forms who would like to expand their skill base with aerial work. The course is aimed at beginners.
The project runs part-time for two years and will provide participants with intensive training in trapeze, cocoon, silks and rope as well as harness techniques like abseil and bungee harness. Year 2 will involve the creation of an ensemble final performance in collaboration with other artists from dance, theatre, digital media and/or visual art. We welcome people who have always aspired to train aerial skills but may have never had the opportunity and particularly welcome applicants skilled in other disciplines (i.e. martial arts, climbing, parkour, dance, physical theatre, b-boying, stunting, yoga etc).
The course is funded by WacArts and the Arts Council and is free (A £120 deposit will be required which is returned on course completion). Training will be provided by Scarabeus and Upswing.
Please note that places will be allocated based on the suitability of the applicant.
Deadline for applications: 5pm on Wednesday 1st April 2015.
