We finished our tour of Not Until We Are Lost in the autumn – thanks again to all the wonderful choirs and audiences across the country that made it such a memorable tour.
Since then we have welcomed a new performer to the company – the great Grania Pickard came on board for a sold out week of the Triple Bill at the Sydney Festival in January where we had some incredibly lovely reviews from the Australian press.
Grania also joined us for a reprisal of The Mill at the Lincoln Drill Hall and Aberystwyth Arts Centre.
We have also been working on various collaborations. Alex worked as an aerial and rigging consultant for Arc Dance & for the show STRIKE! by Keziah Serreau which premiered at Jacksons Lane as part of the Roundhouse's CircusFest.
Alex is also performing in a huge and beautiful oak tree as part of Rosemary Lee & Simon Whitehead's Calling Tree in Betwys -y -Coed in August.
Once again we have been working in collaboration with Oily Cart. Tina worked as an aerial choreographer on the early years show Mr & Mrs Moon and Charlotte is currently helping to develop a new show The Bounce – for young people with complex disabilities using trampolines, video projection and featuring music from the renowned Syrian musician Maya Youssef.
We have also been leading the Key Club – a Turtle Key Arts arts club for over 16s on the autistic spectrum – in a year of circus workshops leading to a small performance this summer.
Finally, we have begun developing our new show Tipping Point – set to premiere in 2015. We are especially excited about the new equipment and the musical collaboration. More to come as our research progresses...
