FLING PHYSICAL THEATRE is a youth dance organisation based in the Bega Valley, on the far South Coast of NSW, Australia. Founded in 2001, FLING provides opportunities for young people to work with local and visiting professional artists to create original contemporary performance projects.
Our core program is the FLING Company with performers aged 14-18, who are involved in the creation and presentation of major projects, which have toured within our region and beyond. FLING also provides two younger company programs YFLING and FLUX Creators for ages 7-14, and delivers broad reaching Community Engagement, Outreach and Education programs.
At FLING we create space for young people to explore and express their creativity while developing skills in movement and performance, creative thinking, problem solving and teamwork. These experiences build confidence, commitment and resilience. They also support physical health, mental health and wellbeing, and can provide pathways to professional careers in the arts.
FLING projects are diverse in content and style, providing a broad range of high quality arts experiences, inspiring and engaging our community as performers, makers and audience. We give voice to regional perspectives, creating culturally ambitious work that is relevant beyond our regional context.
