“Circus for the fearless, the urban. A beautiful portrait of human defiance, of connection, of adrenalin.” Augusta Supple, Australian Stage

Sydney company Branch Nebula brings their breath-taking anarchic street style performance to Adelaide, Bordertown and Whyalla’s local skate parks. Branch Nebula’s team infiltrates the skate park for a whole week, jamming moves and tricks with the locals, and building up for a spectacular improvised performance at the end.

With a live drummer driving the action, bodies and wheels collide, race each other, and blur into one.

Branch Nebula and its team of professional skaters, BMX riders, dancers and parkourists have wowed audiences from Sydney Festival to Hong Kong, Finland and Chile – now it’s Adelaide, Whyalla and Bordertown’s turn!

Snake Sessions brings an audience to a skate park to share an experience of urban culture as a powerfully dramatic and artistic experience, and a celebration of its virtuosity and inventiveness.

 

Snake Sessions is produced by Intimate Spectacle, and toured by Arts on Tour, supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council. It was commissioned by Bundanon Trust and developed with the support of Critical Path. Branch Nebula is supported by the Australia Council, and by the NSW Government through Arts NSW.
