Leap of Faith

RoguePlaytheatre are creating a new piece of circus theatre for outdoor performance at the site of Sparkhill swimming baths. The project, entitled Leap of Faith, is funded by the Birmingham City council as part of their “Culture on your doorstep” scheme and in partnership with Soul City Arts. The performance, entitled Leap of Faith, will use the huge mural painted on the back of the building, by Mohammed Ali of Soul City arts, as the inspiration for the piece.

We are holding open rehearsals accessible to people 19+, followed by free workshops to give you an opportunity to have a go at Silks and Static trapeze, as well as Capoeira and acrobatics. The full performances in April will be followed by participatory workshops including graffiti provided by Soul City Arts

Open Rehearsals / Workshops @ Unit 8, Minerva Works, 158 Fazeley St, B5 5RT 
Tuesday 5th  March 3pm-5pm, Wednesday 20th March 3pm-5pm

Performances @ Sparkhill Park, Stratford Rd:

As a company, RoguePlay are dedicated to the development of Circus Theatre- primarily concerned with the combination of a text based narrative and the use of both ground and aerial circus. We have been most recently involved in an Arts Council funded project entitled 'If Only I Could', an outdoor circus theatre performance which was also supported by the Birmingham's Hippodrome, MAC Birmingham, Sandwell Arts Festival and mentored by NoFit State Circus.
