Use our Space

fffcThe Flying Fruit Fly Circus headquarters in Albury is award-winning and purpose-built for circus training.

As the National Youth Circus, the company is committed to making the facilities available to artists. We do this through our Creative Space, and Open Training programs.

Creative Space

Creative Space is a new initiative providing an opportunity for individual artists, groups and small-scale companies to join our regional community for an agreed period of time to create circus and physical theatres works in our award-winning headquarters. Visiting artists receive free access to our training facilities and mentorship by our trainers in order to create new work, and give back to our student community by running workshops or masterclasses.

Since 2016 artists and companies such as Company 2, Maya Tregonning, Felicia Lannan  and Gravity Dolls have developed work through the Creative Space program.

Submissions for Creative Space residencies in 2018 are currently open. Spaces are limited; please download the guidelines below for more information.
