Artist taking the Lead | Unlimited | Legacy Trust UK
Conflux will shape the landscape of Street Arts, Circus and Physical Theatre in Scotland for generations to come. CONFLUX will foster a thriving, high calibre Street Arts, Circus and Physical Theatre sector, producing groundbreaking performance while providing Scottish communities access to engaged participatory cultural endeavours.
Both the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the 2014 Commonwealth Games are significant opportunities for the development of the Circus, Street Arts & Physical Theatre sector. While the Games are an important concrete focus, the legacy of CONFLUX will be a vibrant sector, providing long term opportunities for high quality participatory activities and enabling professional artists, for generations to come, to build a sustainable career within Scotland.
CONFLUX has multiple relationships with organisations across Scotland. Key partners include Dabce Base, Iron-Oxide, Physical Theatre Scotland, Platform, Edinburgh Mela, UZ and SSCAN. Its Artistic Director is award-winning physical theatre practitioner Al Seed.
The key activities of CONFLUX are artists’ residencies, masterclasses, teacher training (in collaboration with Physical Theatre Scotland) and an extensive education and outreach programme with a specific focus on 16-24 year olds. There will be two festivals in 2010 and 2012.
