Airborne offers a dynamic, energetic and creative programme that allows you to create visually stunning and boundary pushing performances. Airborne’s approach creates a physical language through which to tell stories and explore themes.
During the course you will develop techniques and skills in areas such as physical theatre, commedia, contemporary dance and martial arts, as well as exploring the use of music, digital art and spoken word in performance. Using high energy, often risk-taking, dynamic movement and expressive communication you will create original, visually stunning performances.

The Empirical Company (16-25 years)
Empirical’ adjective: derived from or guided by experience or experiment.
Our Empirical Company offers a feeling of a supportive community where members are enabled to discover different energies, forms and techniques, plus new methods of making and creating performances. It is about taking a leap into the unknown.
Whilst members must have prior experience of performing, we aim to provide them with a training program that will support them technically, conceptually and personally to discover and shape their own unique artistic visions.
Training covers a wide range of approaches from acting, dance and movement to self-scripting, technical skills and performance. Our goal is to facilitate the development of young artists who have the skill, vision and courage to create vital new and exciting theatre.
