FLING Physical Theatre is a youth dance organisation based in Bega, on the far south coast of NSW, Australia. We create original contemporary performance projects with young people drawn from our community, working in collaboration with local and visiting professional artists.
Founded in 2001, FLING's core program is the FLING Company, for performers aged 14 to 18. The FLING Company are involved in the creation and presentation of our major projects, which have toured within our region and beyond. The FLING Company has a strong reputation for producing highly skilled performers, and many have gone on to tertiary study and professional careers in the arts.
FLING projects are diverse in content and style, and are designed to inspire & activate our community. We believe in creating memorable arts experiences that are inclusive and accessible. FLING is an important part of the cultural landscape in our region and we constantly aspire to go beyond our limits, and produce work that is original, inspiring and relevant.
FLING also provides training programs for our community offering classes in a variety of physical disciplines, performance opportunities for all ages and abilities, and education services for preschool, primary and high schools.
