The Freestyle Orchestra & Ross Edwards' Maninyas Violin Concerto

Physical and Movement Training

For this specific project, members of the ensemble trained multiple times per week both individually and together for over a year. They explored disciplines including gymnastics, aerial arts, breakdancing, modern dance, staff and fire manipulation.

They learned from dozens of teachers and peers and took advantage of half a dozen open fields, gyms, training centers and trampoline parks. In particular, they thank Irene Schuberth, TRAP/Phoenix Circus Arts Center,  Nikita Pichler, the Aerial Arts Vienna Studios and Staff, Shade Flamewater, Kate Reid, Nellie Collins and all the rest (you know who you are).
