Free Residency for Professionals July 2017

Opportunity for Professional Movement Artists: Developmental Residency with the Carpet Bag Brigade, Aerial Edge and Merchant City Festival.

We’ve teamed up with Arizonian artists The Carpet Bag Brigade to offer professionals in Circus, Dance, Parkour, Physical Theatre, and Street Performance the opportunity to take part in our upcoming development residency. The Carpet Bag Brigade who specialise in Acrobatic Stilt walking, master a unique theatrical language in the delicate overlap of theatre, dance and circus. This summer they will be working with a group of Aerial Edge’s professional circus artists to create an innovative cross genre performance as part of their Merchant City Festival Residency at Aerial Edge, an opportunity which we have decided to open up to the wider performance community for those who are interested.

Professional artists in any of the disciplines mentioned above (or similar) are welcome to apply to take part in this free professional development residency.

You must be able to commit to all dates/ times of the residency including the showing.
