No Fit State Circus
Creative Black Country commissioned us to help coordinate groups in Sandwell for their No Fit State Circus project, a two-day event bringing together young people and professional circus performers.
We found and looked after these groups - Fusion Dance Academy, Cre8 Performing Arts, Sandwell Flyers and Rick Dubidats Black Belt Academy.
“Many thanks for your work on Open House, you did a great job at recruiting, mobilising and coordinating collaborators from Sandwell; we found them individually and collectively inspiring and we were excited by what was achieved in such a short time”.
Orit Azaz, No Fit State Director
"It was a big bunch of fabulousness! I have wanted to try out circus skills for a long time and this gave the opportunity to. No Fit State were extremely encouraging, talented and made me feel confident to step out of my comfort zone. I would love to do it all again! "
Project Performer Chelsea Cartwright
"I had so much fun! I loved every minute of it and smiled for the whole time. I would love to join the circus"
Performer Natalie Homer
Our work involved time-tabling events, transport and most importantly liaison with Creative Black Country, No Fit State and the managers, leaders and instructors of the groups involved.
The event was a great success with hundreds of people watching four performances over a two-day period.
