First Flight Crew are taking themselves to the streets of Sydney and busting out their moves.
The First Flight Crew are NSW’s only hip hop group comprising entirely of people that identify as having a disability ranging from Down Syndrome to Autism. The crew create all original music with Aussie hip hop legend Morganics and the group is managed by sliced bread attraction’s Alison Richardson.
Over the 3 years since they were formed they have performed all across Sydney from Bondi to Bankstown, have appeared on national TV and were the face of the NSW Don’t DIS my ABILITY campaign in 2010.
Now in rehearsals, the FFC are cooking up another track with Morganics and brushing up their show stopping routine for the Flight Paths performances that will take place on:
- Sat 12 November at Belmore Park, (opp Central Station), Eddy Ave
- Sat 19 November at Town Hall steps, George St
See you on the streets!
They did it! Nina, Emma, Digby, Chris and Nam (with the spirit of Kirsty and Marky) all busted their moves in front of a 100 or so strong crowd at the Beach Rd Hotel, Bondi last Friday night. It was fantastic that a whole new group of people outside of the disability sector were exposed to the talents of these guys.
Bakehouse- it was the week that was! For a full wrap of events and all the photos check out the Bakehouse tab above! Some feedback on Bakehouse: “I really liked the caravan, the music and the puppets. I also liked playing all the musical instruments and trying on all the puppets and also doing what I did in the caravan. Thank you for the great time I had at CarriageWorks.”
Alison has been busy by building up her street credibility by helping Victorian organisation, Club Wild coordinate a series of hip hop workshops in Alexandria.
The double-sided-full-colour-A5-10pp-concertina-fold-with-scoring-matt-finish-140gsm bumper Bakehouse program featuring Bankstown’s local hip hopper Marky Mark on the cover has surfaced is ready to be released on the world!
The Recreation Sports & Aquatic Club’s senior drama ensemble were the fabulous models for Bakehouse’s recent photo shoot. The group donned wigs, feather boas, detachable ears, googly eyes, oversized fans, fur coats and whatever else they could get their hands on.
