We have great news! Our new show, Step Ball Change has been successful in our Grants for the Arts application for research and development. We have been busy already, completing the first four days as part of our Lab: time support from Circus Space. I am collating the video footage as we speak which will post in due course.
It’s all kicking off in 2014.
Next week I have the pleasure and privilege of training with aerial company Upswing for 2 weeks on their ‘Step up’ programme. Aerial will be a new venture for me as I have previously only stayed on the ground/on a ball/ in Owen’s capable hands before now.
From February 3rd- 7th I will be doing some R&D on the new show Step, Ball, Change with the delightful Holly France. We have already been scheming about tap shoes and Charleston moves and are vey excited to get going. Below is one of the images I’ve been looking at for inspiration!
I am also looking forward to going to For The Love of It , a Street Arts networking and skill sharing event from 21st-23rd February in Stoke-on-Trent, where we will also be having the AGM for the National Association of Street Artists. Sign up if you’re not already a member!
Molly Orange are delighted to announce we will be working with choreographer Holly France on our new project Step Ball Change. As one of London’s Finest Flappers working with dance troupe the Bees Knees, Holly will be bringing her mixture of tap, lindy and Charleston to the project along with a heavy helping of humour. Can’t wait.

We are delighted to announce that we have been supported by the Lab:time programme at Circus Space to research and develop a new idea in February entitled Step Ball Change. This will be a collaborative project looking at rhythm, tap dance and the circus discipline walking globe. We are looking for a tap choreographer/teacher to work with on this project who has a sense of adventure and humour. If you would like to apply please send a CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org

Spoke at my first panel on programming street arts at the Association of Festival Organisers conference this weekend. It was great to get talking about the work and how artists and programmers can work together to make a great event. I really enjoyed promoting the NASA membership too with the new members yearbook.
