Dissecting Aerial 14-15 January 2023
Tickets for Dissecting Aerial 2023 go on sale to the public next week. Today, you get pre-sale access to the early bird ticket offer. No more emailing back and forth like in previous years, now you can buy your tickets online via our website. If you identify as underrepresented in the aerial or circus sectors, you can apply for a limited number of subsidised places that get 50% off.
Two days of presentations, talks and practical sessions that investigate the body in motion, particularly while flying. Join us in person in Brighton, from your home or personal studio, or with a group of peers/students as a virtual Studio Hub to listen to access 12 different presentation sessions from world renowned practitioners and speakers.
From the archives, ‘From Where I’m Standing’ is a film we made way back in 2005 with film maker Carl Stephenson, composer Peter Coyte, Director Flick Ferdinando and fellow aerialist John Paul Zaccarini. It will be screening as part of the Brighton Screendance Festival at The Dance Space alongside a whole host of work from amazing artists on Wednesday 16 November, 7-8.45pm. We'd love to see you there!
Lindsey, Wanda Moretti and Kate Lawrence invite you to consider and discuss trust, collaboration, playfulness, inclusivity and participation in vertical dance. We’ll share a film that gives insight into the three Creating Connections projects that took place in Italy, Wales and England, before jumping into a round table discussion with a panel of guests incl Margaret Wilson and Sara Houston.
We are delighted to have been awarded a laurel at TILT Aerial Dance Film Festival for Rowan Rock. The setting for the film is a rock, split in two by a living Rowan tree, in Glenesk, Scotland where Lindsey spent the 1st UK lockdown period.
Rowan Rock stands out in the landscape as a testament to survival and resilience. Being tethered to the rock by a rope in that landscape, was representative of Lindsey's lockdown experience - anchoring to a place of isolation for safety and of being forced to slow down.
We worked with VocalEyes to audio describe the film, which you can now view in full (4 mins 12 sec) >>>
We are happy to announce that Gravity & Levity are now an Associate Company at Worthing Theatres and Museum. It's so exciting to be working with an organisation who value the work we do and where there is a mutual appreciation, trust and a desire to work together. We look forward to what's coming...
...including working with WTM to re-imagine a piece first created with choreographer Charles Linehan in 2008, ‘Crawdaddy’, for outdoor touring. Massive thanks to Arts Council England for supporting this new iteration, which will feature a vertical dance trio with live music, where we use the aerial set to navigate the nature of human relationships, both literally and metaphorically in a constantly changing and unstable environment. We can't wait to get started!
