FoF : Plays on Trapeze

Educational Offerings



      Fight or Flight conducts workshops for actors on the technique of applying actions and objectives to the low-flying trapeze, to expand their range of expression. We train people not only how to become physically capable on the trapeze, but also how to explore relationship, conflict, and imagery using the aerial arts.


We’ve conducted workshops with young folks and old folks; professional actors and curious amateurs; experienced aerialists and those who have never touched a trapeze in their lives.  Each Fight or Flight workshop is a unique event.

We've done things as varied as: embody physics lessons, perform concepts for a math class field trip, and create live stage-play versions of the Greek myths and young-adult short stories being studied by an English class. Whatever your lessons may be, we are glad to synthesize them into an airborne educational treat your students will never forget.


After three years of working with local New York City schools, we're passionate about entertaining and educating students.  For ideas, recommendations, references, and more information about organizing a Fight or Flight Field trip, please INQUIRE FURTHER.
