Flying Diplodocus aims to research, develop, create and produce innovative, experimental Circus-Theatre which pushes the art-form further on its journey of development and:
We are: open, creative, supportive, socially conscious, environmentally aware, sustainable, self-sufficient, questioning, human centred, investigative and joyful in the pursuit of all of its objectives.
We have an in-depth understanding of physicality which allows us to understand the nature of circus movement in new ways, coupled with a background in theatre it places s at the forefront for the development of Circus-Theatre in the UK.
Founder Paul Evans has worked across the UK with: NoFit State, Crashmat Collective, The Roundhouse, Pif Paf, The Whispering Woodfolk, Seachange Arts, Liberty Arts Festival/National Paralympics Day and The Mahogany Opera Group.
Having come to circus via gymnastics and theatre Paul has seen the possibilities to push circus further, by not limiting skill to create theatre and choreography, but to use the skill as the foundation of dramatic and choreographic purpose. With this intent there is a desire to truly research what circus has to offer and so this is prominent in our approach to creating work. Our aim is to eventually set up a research centre for Circus-Theatre in the UK and encourage this practice throughout the art-form.
