Fly on a Wall is an idea house that presents and supports innovative performance. Their work thrives on artists of all backgrounds coming together to create art that lives at the junction of wit, risk, and meaningful experiences. Fly on a Wall shifts audiences perspectives by creating an interface of artistic mediums that is guided by a strong theatrical sensibility and an extensive movement vocabulary.
Since their inception in 2014 Fly on a Wall has created a body of work which includes multimedia performance, installation, and dance for film. They have been presented by Dashboard, the Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Contemporary, Art on the Atlanta Beltline, Synchronicity Theatre, Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery, the City of Duluth, and the Marietta Performing Arts Center. They have offered community classes for dancers and non-dancers alike, and have been recognized as Distinguished Fellows by the Fulton County Arts Council with a scholarship to the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences. Most recently they received a 2016 Idea Capital Grant and a residency at Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery.
Fly on a Wall’s work best reveals itself through inventive theatrical elements that often manifest as performative structures. These elements are integral to the work and allow the audience new dimensions with which to view it.
Performance structures that Fly on a Wall has created include: large plexiglass prisms for Art on the Atlanta Beltline, a tandem bicycle generating power for a light bulb in Dashboard’s Shifting Scapes, an abstract home made of 20 ft. floor to ceiling paper panels inside an abandoned castor factory, and collaboration with Dashboard and the Alliance Theater on a fully interactive installation for babies 0-24 months old. Once completed, each of these structures housed Fly on a Wall’s unique blend of movement and theater.
Fly on a wall is writing a new chapter in how dance and theater are mirroring what is happening in our community and around the world. They are in the center of a creative and imaginative expression that is manifesting into a platform that is about now; about what matters. It is the new edge.
Fly on a Wall is always looking for new artists to work with and new ideas to explore
