In October 2022, we held a week-long aerial theatre project at Taking Flight Studio where our members devised short performance pieces based around the text of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, combining aerial work with theatrical performance.
This collaboration continued into 2023 with a series of blended workshops for our members, to engage with aerial performance as a discipline, bringing a theatrical performance lens to aerial technique with a combined group of young aerialists and DYT members. 

We co-facilitated a week-long aerial theatre residential week at Taking Flight Studio during the 2023 easter break, developing a 30 minute performance piece, inspired by the Neil Gaiman novella Coraline. The technical elements of the project focused on building physical ensemble skills across floorwork, supported lifts, and aerial counterweight. There was a public showing at the end of the process attended by friends and family.
