Sophia Gardens Sports Conference 2011

Fluidity were invited along to Sophia Gardens (home of welsh sport) , to an expo where different sports meet together and discuss the development of local governing bodies, events and welsh sports and help to pave the way forward.

We did a short  but sweet performance in a half time interval before talking about ourselves and our goals for the future. Very well received, and helping to breach the border between sports governing bodies and freerunning!

Glastonbury - Bearded Kitten

Frazer was lucky enough to be invited to work with events company “Bearded Kitten” , for Glastonbury 2011!

This was the first time Bearded Kitten has been invited to work at Glastonbury, with an impressive Spanish themed arena built in
“Campo Pequeno” .

There were a variety of insane and querky shows going on, from raves, to crazy mexican wrestling shows. With a constantly packed arena, Frazer was involved in the show titled “Matador” which aside from a terrific aerial artist display featured a gigantic fire breathing bull which he had to face, with a 40foot stunt fall to finish.

An incredible show , regardless of the bad weather which somewhat hindered the performances.

GoPro Viral

Fluidity are working with both GoPro (www.gopro.com) and X-treme Video (http://www.x-tremevideo.com/) to come up with the first big viral video for Freerunning, using the GoPro HD camera.

An amazing HD camcorder used for sports, the video is going to be a big hit with the channels having around 35K subscribers!

 

 

Bridgend Mashup

Craig and Frazer went to the Bridgend Mashup Festival, which took place in the streets of Bridgend. With skate ramps, graffiti, pole vault, dancing along with many other activities and big names (Flowdem performed a set on stage).

We had massive crowds, as we provided some workshops and freerunning displays.

Gran Canaria

In May 2011, Jake and Rhidian were hired by e-sensual dance company to provide a mix of free running, acrobatics and dance at the prestigious annual gay pride event in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria. Along with other freerunners from across the UK (JJ Goda and Contrix of Urbanfreeflow).

The group spent a month out there, constantly rehearsing dance and acrobatic routines , leading up to shows with crowds of over 27 thousand people. In addition, along side other international performers they were involved in providing street entertainment in the run up to the main festivities and choreographing acrobatic routines.

S4C , Y Lle

Another Piece with S4C for the Y Llew series, this featured Fluidity and some friends running through the bay, with Rhid talking about the group .

Britains Got Talent 2011

At the end of the year in 2010, Fluidity Freerun were asked to go and audition for the first auditions of Britains Got Talent. Under much trepidation, we decided we would go along and tell them who we were and what we did. Fluidity were very well recieved on showing the series producer our showreel and telling them about ourselves.

We made it through to the first live auditions in WMC in Cardiff. We came up with a routine (featuring Frazer, Craig, Lew, Rhid and Jake) which was a few minutes long, and had a few very spectacular feats in.  We were the first group on, received a standing ovation as well as 3 firm “yes”es.

Over the coming months, we prepared for the next stage of the show which took place on April 9th-10th, where we were subject to days of interviewing and waiting….

Eventually we were told that we would not be going further, and i guess that concludes our Britains Got Talent adventure. Considering we never even planned to try and go on the show we are pretty impressed with ourselves.

We keep getting asked if we will try again next year…. truth is i don’t think we have even thought about it!

 

Bridgend Council Workshops

Since the start of 2011, Fluidity have been working with the council of Bridgend and the Youth services in collaboration, to bring a series of successful workshops to Bridgend monthly (held in the Rec Centre). With kids from all walks of life (probationary services, youth offenders etc) the class always has a solid 30+ , and has even seen the crime rate with Anti-social behavior go down.

 

Ending around June 2011, we are starting back in the early fall.

 

Kix TV Shoot

Following on from the highly successful live Science Junkie show, the guys at Science Junkies were commissioned to create a TV version ,where they would talk about each sport and show footage of it in action to help demonstrate the science behind the sport. So we got together with Huw and Greg and started shooting through Cardiff.

 

Check out some of the photo gallery here, and an online piece will be posted eventually.

Red Bull Art Of Motion 2011 London

Art of Motion was the first Freerunning orientated competition to come about , starting in 2008 in Vienna, and since going around the world.   Frazer was asked by Red Bull to represent the UK in the UK’s first every Art Of Motion event, held at London Southbank with around 8,000 spectators (lining themselves through the streets, spaces and even bus stops from the bridge!) .

Along with 23 other contestants from around the world, Frazer jammed and performed with them, and then had his own run.  A few slip ups here and there, and not exactly what he had in mind, but none the less a great time and a prestigious event to be a part of !
