Watch the journey of Fly by Night from consultation, rehearsals and show.
Themed around the universal topic of sleep, dreams and bedtimes, Fly by Night started out as a research project (Sleep Enquiry Project). Inspired by the ideas and experiences of children and their grown ups, the work developed into a touring piece. Fly by Night is sometimes an interactive art installation and sometimes a performance and workshops. With movement play at its very heart, Fly by Night has enjoyed a run of sell out visits to theatres, childrens centres, festivals and events across the UK.
This video captures the many phases of our explorations which led us to our tour which began in Autumn 2011.
Below the vid is a slideshow of the making of the show which included some help from the children of Rockliffe First School.
