FLING Physical Theatre has some exciting new projects launching in the coming weeks, as well as some must-see performance events.
On April 5 Fling and community members will perform a flash mob in Littleton Gardens.
Earlier this year the company was asked by the Bega Valley Shire Youth Council to help create a flash mob to celebrate Youth Week which runs April 4-13.
The Youth Council and Fling want lots of people from the community to join in and will be holding two rehearsals prior to the performance, tomorrow at 9am and April 5 at 9am at Bega Indoor Stadium for those who want to learn the dance.
There is also a link on the Fling Physical Theatre Facebook page to a video of the dance so you can rehearse at home.
April 5 will be a busy day for Fling, with the company also hosting the African Dance Party event from 6-8pm.
The night will feature Bembakan, a collective led by David Hewitt which features the cream of the Far South Coast’s incredible drumming talent.
You won’t be able to resist moving to Bembakan’s mesmerising and infectious rhythms.
There will be an African dance lesson from 6-6.30pm followed by an open dance party.
This alcohol-free family event is for Fling Physical Theatre members only, children under 14 must attend with a parent or guardian.
The cost $5 on the door for members, or $10 to become a member of Fling.
Company members have also been hard at work on Cross the Floor, the first Fling performance for 2014.
This dynamic new work explores parkour and contemporary dance, and was created with Sydney-based choreographer and dancer Matt Cornell.
This work is born out a series of Cross the Floor workshops delivered last year to boys at Bega High School and Lumen Christi Catholic College.
Cross the Floor will premier on May 2 and run until May 5.
Community classes for Term 1 are almost finished, but Fling has one more exciting class up its sleeve for April.
Silver Steps is a series of professional development workshops for people interested in dance for the elderly.
The workshops will be facilitated by London-based dance artist and teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance, Helen Linkenbagh who is formally of Cooma.
The workshops will look at current practice and methods in dance for older people and support a wish to establish classes and an ensemble of older dancers in the Bega Valley.
