AERIAL CREATION INTENSIVE

In December 2015 we are hosting an intensive aerial training programme aimed at performers and semi-professional aerialists, dancers and physical theatre practitioners.
The course is aimed at intermediate to advanced level practitioners and designed to develop aerial technique, improve and revive existing technique and acts, and create the beginnings of new aerial theatre work.
