Crying Out Loud Associate Artists, Pirates of the Carabina are in residency with Far From The Norm this week, a company producing contemporary, experimental hip hop theatre.
Their Artistic Director, Botis Seva, is a choreographer who happily works collaboratively and across art forms, whilst company members strive to break boundaries and challenge audiences by portraying hip hop in a dynamic and abstract way. Pirates of the Carabina is a trailblazing circus company pushing circus technique with its inventive acts and stunts. Put Crying Out Loud into the mix, with its commitment to providing opportunities to artists to develop their practice, and you have a residency made in heaven.
For one week the artists will train together, expand their practice and push boundaries. Pirates of the Carabina will introduce Far From The Norm to Chinese pole, wall running, flying, counterweighting, bungees, rope, aerial hoop and silks.
With both companies possessing the desire to push boundaries, it’s a meeting of minds. There will be lots of exciting circus, acrobatic and dance jamming this week. Watch this space.
