Crying Out Loud Creative Residency 2016

What a success! Pirates of the Carabina, masters of aerial, spent a fantastic week in residency with Far From The Norm, masters of experimental hip hop theatre.

Video-maker Alice Underwood captured the essence of this unique, week-long creative residency, please take a look.

The two companies – working together at the wonderful Invisible Circus Creation Space – spent a week exchanging skills and teaching each other their own tricks. Unknown muscles were engaged. There was pain! Far From the Norm were in awe of the Pirates’ core strength, and in turn they were in admiration of their phenomenal lower body stamina. The apparatus on offer included Chinese pole, wall running, flying, counterweighting, bungees, and rope. You can see more of Alice’s films here.

Residencies are bespoke and developed in conjunction with each artist. Residencies for Associate Artists Pirates of the Carabina, Iona Kewney and Jeanne Mordoj have taken place at Lighthouse Poole, Farnham Maltings, La brèche and Kings College Institute.
