*It is essential that participants are able to attend the final rehearsal on Tuesday 3rd October and the final event on Wednesday 4th October.

We hope to accommodate everyone who is interested in taking part in the 2017 workshops however, because of limited spaces, decisions will be based on geographical spread, age and time participants are able to commit to workshops.

The Flames work at pace exploring ideas and devising in partnership with Tricky Hat’s artists. The work is created in just five sessions before being performed in front of an audience. Previous events have been inspired by themes such as love, memory and obsession. The company uses performance, film and specially composed music to explore stories about life after fifty, challenging our perceptions of ageing.

The Flames will be back at the CCA in autumn with our third gorilla session on 4 Oct 2017. Previous events have taken place at the CCA on 26 October 2016 and 19 April 2017.
