Conflux is a project developing a voice for Scottish-based artists working in the field of Physical Performance (incorporating street arts, physical theatre and circus). Conflux creates opportunities for the development of both fully professional and emergent artists. The work of these professional and emergent artists is showcased at Conflux's annual festival SURGE. SURGE 2013 will take place this July, with eyes firmly fixed on building towards the Commonwealth Games year in 2014.
Conflux’s home, The Arches, is one of Europe’s leading multi-arts venues with a proven history of delivering cutting-edge theatre, performance art, music and club nights. For more information [click here]
