Taking Flight, taking off!
Transition Year students from Elphin Community College are now in their fifth week of preparations for putting on a show in the Roscommon Arts Centre on Wednesday, 13th April. Entitled “Taking Flight”, it explores the stereotypes around teenagers and how these are transcended by the work, energy and spirit of young adults today.
The piece uses a combination of aerial and gymnastic skills, involving trapeze, ropes and mini-trampolines. Students will move, dance, lift, jump, climb and finally fly. This will be accompanied by multi-media, using music and video-imagery to help get their message across.
Students are now working with Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre, who are the Irish leaders in aerial performance. Fidget Feet will double-bill with their acclaimed performance of Hang On.
