Forest Of Dean - Friday Night Project

Craig and Frazer went to run a full workshop/taster session in Whitcross Sports Center, Forest Of Dean. This “Friday Night Project” had well over 115 young teens (and apparently this was a quiet night) , in and out of the center to take part in a number of activities.

Frazer and Craig delivered a successful 1 and a half hour session teaching the ins and outs of freerunning. Incredibly well received , and hoping to do further work in the future for this lovely community group!

 

 

Sports Accelerate - Gymnation

Through Gymnation , Fluidity were invited to coach a freerunning session in the prestigious gymnasium at Sophia Gardens for the Sports Accelerate programme. This had talented kids come from across the region to try out a number of sports over a day.

After delivering several short sessions, there was a demand for more and kids flocked back to jam in the gym with us. Check out the news edit of the event below.

 

 

Penygraig Workshops

In Penygraig town Bike Club , we provided a large workshop session for the community present. We had around 50 kids, pouring rain and no venue, but we still managed to have a great outside session teaching the basics and drilling some challenges.

This was so popular that we were later asked to come back to provide a series of workshops to the community through August. A great success, and looking to do more in the future!

 

Beach Break Live 2011

Fluidity were invited to perform at Beach Break Live, the UK’s largest Student only festival based in the gorgeous beach of Swansea , Pembrey.

Fluidity were originally invited to do workshops and performances, but this later changed to doing some tricking sessions and jams.  With massive audiences and loads of photographers (especially on the last night with the “Into The Wild” theme, Beach Break was one of the funnest festivals we have done yet, and next year is looking to shape up as even better!

 

Check out the gallery in the media section, and here are some of the pics!

Tonypandy Workshops

Following Tonyrefail and Penygraig, we started weekly sessions in Tonypandy Community College through E3. We ran these through the end of the school summer term.

 

 

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.
