Applause: Latest Funding and Awards Announced
The Flying Fruit Fly Circus has announced the five projects which will be supported through its COVID-19 seed funding initiative Make Our Way Out.
With a singular goal to assist established circus artists to make new work during these challenging of times, Make Our Way Out provides a $2,000 cash grant and access to the company’s Albury-Wodonga training space, apparatus, trainer expertise and accommodation.
There was a strong response to the call-out and Artistic Director, Anni Davey, said: ‘Our facility will be full of artists at all stages of their careers making new contemporary circus, influencing and inspiring the next generation of circus artists with creative energy.’
The five groups supported by the project are:
