THE FLYING DUDES WAS ESTABLISHED IN LONDON JANUARY 1999 WITH THE FOLLOWING SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES :

- To preserve and proliferate the flying trapeze as a living art form
- To promote training in the circus arts as a means to self-empowerment
- To pursue original performance possibilities through collaboration with other art forms
- To inspire a spirit of trust and the pursuit of excellence

"Beings Of Light" - The Dudes 3rd show
Directed by three times Cirque du Soleil artistic director Andrew Watson with a company assembled from the cutting edge of the circus world and a soundscape from the acoustic to a vast industrial wall of sound.
"Beings Of light" is a sonic visual whirlwind through the inner world of Nuncio, circus clown and black magician, at the precise moment of his own suicide.
Visually fusing a homage to the legendary Technicolor masterpiece "Trapeze" with multi-layered film and video projections specifically created by ground breaking V.J., Pete W.
"Beings Of Light" is a rocking roller coaster, brimming with song, dance, light and of course the death defying aerial stunts of Britain's only flying trapeze troupe The Flying Dudes.
