Falling & Flying
Falling & Flying is a long-term collaboration between Entelechy Arts and contemporary circus company Upswing.
Ongoing work has brought together producers, directors, circus artists, writers, filmmakers and digital artists working with isolated older people to explore ideas of uncertainty, vulnerability and change in later life. Workshops, reflection and laboratory sessions have been informed by conversations and practical sessions with health and adult social care professionals.
Working in collaboration with Satellite Films we supported the production of a short poetic and whimsical film that draws a parallel between the experience of older people living in isolation and those living and working in space
This concept was further developed by Satellite Films and Upswng with support from Big Dance which commissioned 5 new short films to celebrate a decade of Big Dance with the theme: ‘Dance Decades’ for Channel 4
