Looking for movement practitioners interested in taking part in a day of led creation in Sheffield.

 

Looking for people with a contemporary, hip-hop, popping, parkour or circus background. Especially interested in people looking to bridge the gap towards performing, or would call themselves early career artists.

 

Though it is an aerial exploration, you don't need aerial as we will be exploring the space between the floor and air, but you do need some general strength and to be able to hold yourself. 

Application: 

Please send a small covering letter as to why you are interested in the project and what movement background you have. 

Optional addition: if you have a video of your movement either on the ground or in the air/CV
