All or Nothing have been flying around Scotland and beyond since 2006, blending breathtaking aerial acrobatics with dance, theatre and contemporary circus.
The company’s unique, creative and engaging work has seen them take on everything from outdoor spectacle to grand interiors and intimate small-scale work for theatre, festivals and one-off events, working with organisations such as National Museum Scotland, Iron-Oxide, the Arches, Beacon, Conflux, Dance Base, City Moves.

In 2011 their production of Uncharted Waters with StrangeBird Zirkus was nominated for a Total Theatre Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, and went on to tour Scotland to great acclaim from critics and audiences alike.

As well as our performance work, AoN are behind several new aerial dance initiatives in Scotland. Spanning both the professional and community sectors we choreograph, mentor, advise and teach, running aerial classes throughout the country with many courses at OOTB Drill Hall. Exciting developments coming up include Flying High, an aerial harness professional development programme, funded by Creative Scotland.

Artistic Director Jennifer Paterson has collaborated and performed with renowned companies and arts organisations, nationally and internationally, and was recently one of the professional aerial team for London 2012 ceremonies.

2013 has so far seen the premiere of Sprawl, a dynamic acrobatic dance theatre duet, for outside and inside spaces, with Room 2 Manoeuvre, at Glasgow’s Merchant City Festival and will be at Dance Live in Aberdeen in October. We also set sail with the Loveboat Big Band during the Fringe and climbed trees for SmallPetitKlein Dance Company.

You’ll find us most days of the week teaching in the Drill Hall or rehearsing at the Arts Factory. We love the buzz of being located at Out of the Blue and have flown, hung, climbed and swung around many parts of the building. Watch out for occasional performances too!
