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!

 

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 !

Urdd Workshops

This year, Rhidian was working very closely with Urdd to deliver a 10 week block of freerunning sessions in Cardiff Central Youth Club, in the medium of Welsh. These went very successful, with many kids booking in for the full 10 weeks.

NoFitState Circus - Parklife - Brighton Festival

Fluidity were chosen to join Cardiff based Circus group NoFitState Circus , in their brand new show “Parklife”, which was touring around the UK.  We went to Brighton and rehearsed over a few days, to blend a show of freerunning in with their current show.

With lots of laughs , games, and long nights the performance was brilliantly recieved. Check a video and website below –

Mens Health Survival Of The Fittest 2009

http://mhsurvival.co.uk/

SOTF is a race through an environment (in this case Cardiff Bay) with a series of obstacles and challenges. Fluidity were brought on board to provide a show of demonstrations, challenges and talk about ourselves and freerunning before the event.

 

With hundreds of competitors and spectators, we had a huge audience, and shared the stage with a famous BMX trials crew.

Swansea Bae Fest 2009

Fluidity were one of the prime entertainment acts to be seen at this years fest. We didnt have any equipment, but with an ecological theme we think this was fitting.  Check out the Bae Fest 2010 post too.

 

 

Bron Afon Festival

Torfaen Gymnastics and Fluidity were invited to perform at a festival going on in Llantarnam School. It was run by Bron Afon, and consisted of us blasting loud music and playing on the airtrack.
