WHAT WE DO
Jump Fall Fly is a social initiative delivering transformational experiences to communities in the South West of the UK.
OUR PURPOSE IS TO create positive social change through circus & theatre arts, creativity & coaching psychology
We use Circus, Theatre and associated Arts integrated with Coaching Psychology to engage with families, young people and the community to tackle their challenges. We are particularly focused on those in need of support in the areas of mental health, health and well being and career development.
Founded in 2019 by Anthony Eldridge-Rogers and Lehla Eldridge after noticing the need for integrated enjoyable activities to help young people and families they decided to bring a unique blend of arts based activities to local communities.
They have launched their first Circus and Theatre Show Project and associated workshops and are now developing strategy to bring them to local communities.
The need for fun enjoyable ways of engaging with people, at a community level, whilst at the same time adding value and opportunity to that engagement is clear.
Circus arts, theatre, storytelling and all the associated activities and skills that integrate with it (such as music, design, art, health, exercise, photography, camera work, lighting and so on) mean there is something for everyone.
Building engagement through coaching psychology which fosters self determination, self development, inter dependence and self responsibility means participants experience respect, dignity and value as soon as they step inside Jump Fall Fly spaces and events.
We have BIG plans including.....
l An International Circus and Story Telling Project based in Exeter, Circus for People & Planet
l A permanent Circus and Theatre Arts Community base free at the point of access
l Touring Live event projects that deliver to local communities
l Workshops, training's and events designed to reduce stress, increase health and optimism, inspire social action and foster self leadership.
Jump Fall Fly has four foundations that frame the work we do:
Community engagement is the core of what Jump Fall Fly does and plans to do. That means building relationships with communities and organisations with like minds. We welcome volunteers of all kinds and with all levels of skills.
Everyone is welcome to find a place in our project family.
The environment and the way we live is a concern for all of us. Jump Fall Fly follows environmentally friendly practices that keeps our eco footprint as low as possible. We recycle and re-purpose what we can to use. We integrate sustainable practises in all our workshops and shows, so that we can inspire audiences and volunteers.
We see life long learning as an exciting way to approach about living.
We inspire our community to notice what they are learning with every step they take with Jump Fall Fly. It can be about anything!
Learning theatre, circus and making skills., healthy eating, nutrition, our environment, music, pretty much anything. It is a joined up system too with people being encouraged to decide for themselves what they feel they have learned and how that fits into their lives.
We take an holistic approach to facilitating and teaching, aiming first and foremost to ignite curiosity and so inspire people to learn new things that can benefit them as they progress in to their lives.
All our work is designed to increase community connectedness, improve self-worth, confidence and deliver better more hopeful lives.
Jump Fall Fly is always in a process of creating. We have a constant creation approach to what we do. We create specific things like circus or theatre shows, events, stories and workshops. Through that we create experiences for people to access, enjoy and use to improve their lives. In this way we also create community and meaningful solutions to life problems that we can act upon.
We create positive social change through circus, theatre arts,
creativity & coaching psychology
