As the cold weather settles in, welcome to Articulation's first newsletter of 2019.
After the large gathering of people at Outdoor Arts UK’s ’The Power of the Possible’ in Glasgow last November, Articulation is excited to be hosting an Open Space meeting in Edinburgh for Artists, Makers and all those interested in Circus, Street Arts and Physical Theatre in Scotland. Save the date: 25th February 2019.
Here’s to an inspiring and productive 2019!
Articulation is an organisation for the support and development of Physical Performance: Circus, Street Arts and Physical Theatre in Scotland.
There are loads of us in Scotland making physical performance.
We make outdoor performance and circus and physical theatre and dance and live art and theatre and things in the gaps between all of these disciplines.
This event is a space for us to get together to think collectively about where we’re going, find out what we have in common and what we don’t, to meet each other, to talk about our challenges and triumphs, to do some hard thinking about what we can do, individually and collectively, to make great physical performance in Scotland.
Whether you are involved in physical performance as a performer, director, designer, producer, writer, administrator, performing arts student or audience member (or any other interested person not on this list) you are welcome. Basically, if you think you’d like to come, you’re invited.
For one day we’ll gather together, name the things we want to work on and get to work. To imagine the future, to connect to each other, to find out what the next step is, for each of us, for all of us.
Cost: £8, including lunch and refreshments
Registration: 9:30am with the event beginning at 10am
Access: There is a limited budget to support access including travel (for those not from Edinburgh) and childcare, this will be allocated on a first come-first-served basis.
To find our more about access support, or for any other questions please contact Ewan at email@example.com
This census is aimed at professionals who in 2018 were in any capacity working in the field of circus in a European Member State.
If you worked in the circus industry in Europe in 2018, in contemporary circus arts, traditional/classical or commercial circus or any combination of these, and in any type of employed or self-employed role you are invited to please participate.
This Study will make a significant difference to the overall funding and status of circus in Europe if it is able to capture the breadth and magnitude of the industry. To do this it requires a high number of people working at a professional level in the industry to participate.
A fantasia of becoming an action hero?
Can the show always go on; no matter how full one’s hands get?
Perhaps a champion will emerge if the fates allow?
Or will dark temptations vampirishly vacuum the dreams of a clown? And scatter them sheepishly before an ominous telephonic tone?
What does it all mean…!?!
A mischievous melange of contemporary clowning and physical comedy with a dark delicious dash of bouffon to round of manipulate, a delightfully daft evening with some of Scotland’s finest clowns.
These hand-picked Clown Cabaret favourites are all looking for the place a clown loves best, to be in front of an audience. Allow them to test their funny upon your frown and unleash their wild and wonderful dreams and fantasies on you!
Little Angel Theatre: The Singing Mermaid
6th – 10th February
The Studio at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre, Potterrow, Edinburgh
One day, the singing mermaid is tempted away from all of her sea creature friends and her peaceful home at Silversands to join a travelling circus. The audiences love to hear her sing, but the poor mermaid was tricked!
Instead of the swimming pool she was promised, she is kept in a small tank by the wicked circus master Sam Sly, and she soon longs to return to the freedom of the sea.
Will she ever escape? And who will help her along the way? Through beautiful puppetry and performance, and with music by Barb Jungr (We’re Going On A Bear Hunt), Little Angel Theatre collaborate once again with Royal & Derngate to bring Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks’ enormously popular story, The Singing Mermaid, to life.
Extremely Pedestrian Chorales by Karl Jay-Lewin & Matteo Fargion
Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh
A quartet of dancers, a beguiling mix of high and low art exploring the multifarious roles and movement language of the pedestrian, a prosaic and commonplace experience of the everyday as an act of beauty, meaning and gently comedy.
Inspired in form and structure by the sublime harmonies of JS Bach’s famous chorales and pitched into our present-day lives with just a dash of punk-ish irreverence, subtle snatches of dance and movement combine with loud titles, live music, big shoes, 18th century powder wigs, and general joyful misbehaviour.
Choreographer, performer and presenter Karl Jay-Lewin and composer, musical director and performer Matteo Fargion have collaborated regularly since first working together in the 1990s. Their working relationship is built in part on drinking too much coffee around the kitchen table and 25 years of comparing parenting worries.
Fooligan - Developed from Al Seed’s Herald Angel Award winning solo show, The Fooligan (2008).
Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh
A modular, musical cabaret act presented by grotesque 18th century characters who form a merry band, The Bridges of Madness. Through songs, poems, soundscape, movement, dance (in the broadest sense), and storytelling the audience is taken on a hilarious theatrical journey, playfully exploring themes of mortality, the supernatural and the nature of evil.
Produced by Puppet Animation Scotland, manipulate celebrates and promotes puppetry, visual theatre and animated films to its audiences.
This year leading theatre artists and film-makers from Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, England, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Russia, Scotland, Spain and the USA present: .
21 works in progress
1 industry-focused seminar
Through manipulate’s works-in-progress platforms and its workshops programmes we provide development opportunities for Scottish-based artists to develop their creative and technical working practices and ambition.
Manipulate’s success over the last decade has helped Scottish-based theatre-makers to create and tour their work to leading international festivals throughout Europe and North America.
When war knocked on our door we left our home behind. We looked ahead and started walking, tiny TV screen figures wandering a large and unforgiving world…
Our bodies are our homes, the landscape of our lives. Private vulnerable places, to be protected and cherished.
By using bodies as visceral, organic performance platforms, geography and politics are physically extended and emotionally transformed. The familiar becomes unknown, the intimate an open space.
In a unique meeting between puppetry, physicality, choreography and video projections, lines of people struggle up the hill of a bent back, a make-shift boat and people in the water drift on a sea-blue painted belly. We look through binoculars across a border zone. In a military helicopter we track the homeless. We witness the chaos-filled journeys into exile of displaced people all trying to save their skins.
It reminds us powerfully that our opinion of refugees is largely a matter of choosing our point of view. These people – anyone, anywhere, anytime – are not other. Under different circumstances they are us.
Since the beginning of November last year four groups of selected Scottish-based theatre artists have been meeting on Monday evenings. Using the knowledge and insights of the other practitioners in the room as a sounding board, they have nurtured and developed their initial creative ideas, presenting short excerpts of their work at manipulate.
Facilitated by leading puppeteer Gavin Glover (A Christmas Carol & The Tin Forest, National Theatre of Scotland) each group’s aim has been to develop those puppet-making and performing skills and expertise most appropriate for their project, with the aspiration that after Testroom they will bring their ideas to full production.
5 Soldiers is a moving, dramatic and unique work that looks at how the human body remains essential to war, even in the 21st century.
A visceral ‘tour de force’ of the senses, 5 Soldiers provides an intimate view of the training that prepares our soldiers for the sheer physicality of combat, for the possibility of injury, and the impact conflict has on the bodies and minds of everyone it reaches.
The piece has a powerful physicality, moments of humour and is full of honesty, all inspired by input from serving and former soldiers, and has been endorsed as ‘getting it’ by its military audiences. In movement, the performance weaves a story of physical transformation, helping us to understand what makes a soldier and how the experience of warfare affects those that choose to put their life on the line.
After a sensational tour across the UK in 2018 with the Greatest Showmen, Gandeys return with The Greatest Show Tour! Staged in the fully-heated 1,000-seat Big Top and equipped with theatre-standard lighting, this is the greatest show for all the family.
Even bigger! Even more spectacular! Thrills a-plenty as the world class Havana Troupe return with 2 new acts; with the sensational 5 handed springboard act and astounding Russian bar Act. Las Chicas Morales set hearts pounding on the rolling globes, Jacqui and Brendan dazzle and amaze on the aerial silks, and Gina displays mystical artistry and poise on the low wire … acrobats balancing, tumbling and achieving the impossible … the electrifying adrenaline-fuelled excitement of the African Warriors… laughter as Europe’s favourite clown Chico Rico creates mayhem and mirth … and not forgetting the West End musical, glittering productions, that Gandey’s have become famous for.
Gandeys Circus is raising the bar sky-high. It is thrills and laughter all the way as you’re elevated to new heights of entertainment for the entire family – from the youngest member to the oldest.

The Conscious Body is a research project that addresses the means to achieve an intense and powerful embodied performance onstage.
It has been developed by Ivan Andrade since 2013 through experimental workshops and classes in Barcelona and other countries of Europe and abroad.
The Conscious Body is the raison d'être of all our productions. We consider truth, intensity, embodiment, and creativity the fundamental and uncanny issues of performance, which we explore through this methodology in all of our shows.
The Conscious Body is a structured methodology that aims at teaching actors, dancers, and singers how to engage an embodied performance. It provides insights into how to deliver an intense, truthful, and creative performance by means of achieving a high level of presence and perception onstage.
In order to access a state of embodiment in which the mind is hardly in control of the situation. Thus, the performer’s actions and movements emerge as a spontaneous response to external stimuli or the body’s expressive needs.

Exploring Physical Theatre Techniques-
A Practical Workshop with Vicky Heath
9th March, 10am – 1pm
Dundee Rep Theatre, Dundee
The workshop will introduce the importance of working with stimulus (a theme, word, image, text, picture, music) and offer suggestions for a stimulus to create a short piece on. Participants will explore how to create a story using various physical theatre techniques, and will have the opportunity to add some text to help formulate structure. The objective of the workshop is for participants to create a toolkit for devising their own physical storytelling.
Vicky Heath has worked professionally as a performer, director and deviser for many years, nationally and internationally, (USA, Ireland, Africa, UK). She is currently the Associate Theatre Artist at The Space in Dundee, Scotland. She is also the Artistic Director of Nunah Theatre Company, based in Dundee. Nunah is an exciting physical theatre company who creates original, visually stunning, emotionally resonant productions, sometimes inside theatres, but more recently in other public spaces.

We are looking for Young People, aged 18-25 with an interest in working as an ensemble to create interesting, vibrant high quality performances, taking responsibility for all aspects of the production process.

Up to £750 to enable your group/organisation to visit another group or project anywhere in Scotland to aid peer-to-peer learning and knowledge exchange.
The Community Learning Exchange is a fantastic opportunity for communities to learn through the exchange of ideas and the sharing of common solutions. When community groups make visits to other communities, the most valuable part is often meeting new people with similar interests and gaining new insights and perspectives on common challenges.
Visiting groups come away armed with new ideas and approaches, and host organisations have the opportunity to explain their project to a new and interested audience, often seeing their own projects afresh through new eyes.
The Exchange will fund up to 100% of the costs of a visit by members of one community to another community project up to a limit of £750, including a host fee. In exceptional circumstances (where travel distances are greater or certain aspects of the visit are particularly expensive) this limit can be increased. Similarly visits out with Scotland, but within the UK will be considered where a similar project does not exist in Scotland.
The Exchange will also fund follow up support between organisations. This might be as a result of a learning visit when it is recognised that more specific and on-going help, support, or advice is required.
Without Walls Open Call: Support for Research and Development of New Outdoor Work
Deadline: 28th January at 10am
Without Walls invites artists and companies to apply for funds through the Blueprint R&D programme. This is designed to support the Research and Development costs of new outdoor touring work for final presentation in 2020 or beyond.
Blueprint support is available to enable artists to undertake development for new shows for presentation in 2020, 2021 or later. Without Walls recognises that ambitious new work takes time to bring to fruition and that artists can benefit from the opportunity to explore new ideas as part of the development process, before committing to a production.
This approach can also assist with fundraising for new work, and can be a useful way of engaging commissioners, supporters and partners in new work.
Eligibility and guidance:
Without Walls is looking for work from all disciplines and genres, that is innovative and ambitious and challenges the idea of what outdoor arts can be.
The planned work must be suitable for outdoor touring and artists should be committed to exploring touring opportunities for the works beyond the Without Walls festivals.
Proposals for work could be adaptable in scale, suitable for daytime and / or evening presentation and may also include promenade or processional based elements.
Without Walls exists to support the development of new and ambitious work by UK artists; projects can be developed in association with international artists, but the lead partner on the project must be based in the UK.

Creative Scotland’s Nurturing Talent – Time to Shine Fund aims to support the artistic and creative ideas of young people aged 11 to 25.
We want to award funding to young people that show ambition, enthusiasm or talent in their chosen art form and require some financial support to develop or promote this further.
Funding may also be awarded to those who face significant barriers to access, such as rural isolation or additional support requirements.
Who is eligible for funding?
You must be aged 11 to 25 years old and live in Scotland to be eligible for funding.
The fund is open to both groups and individuals who can apply for a minimum of £50 and maximum of £1000.
Details of all group members should be included on the application form and the majority of the group should be aged 11 to 25.
Your application, and the ideas behind your application must be led by young people and therefore should be written by young people, unless there is a specific reason this is not possible (e.g. dyslexia, learning difficulty etc.)
We will not accept applications that are not directly from young people.
