FLING Physical Theatre
Three words that describe this company
Authentic, Connected, Inclusive
The FLING Company is a youth performance company for young people aged 14 to 18 from the Bega Valley region. The Company work in a supportive environment where creativity, innovation and playfulness is valued, whilst striving to become highly skilled performers, dancers and creators. After auditioning to join this annual program, the Company train together and develop original performance work which is presented locally, nationally and even sometimes internationally.
Weekly training sessions are held in contemporary dance, ballet, improvisation, gymnastics and movement training. Additional rehearsal times and full-time rehearsals are programmed throughout the year during school holidays for our performance projects. A visiting artist program offers company performers the opportunity to work with professional artists to develop full length original production projects.
