“What a riveting hour of entertainment and insights. Not only acrobatic feats that amaze and impress but revealing stories from cultural backgrounds that stretch from Croatia to Cambodia.” Sydney Morning Herald.
JUMP FIRST, ASK LATER – Parkour from the streets of Fairfield
Jump First, Ask Later is an urban choreographic portrait of the streets of Fairfield in Western Sydney, the most culturally diverse region in Australia. Featuring members of the Dauntless Movement Crew, this work will tell the collective stories of six young people, champions of Fairfield’s underground parkour and street style community.
The performance merges urban freestyle, parkour and dance to engage the audience to find your path – ‘jump first, ask questions later’.
Jump First, Ask Later won the 2017 Helpmann Award for Best Presentation for Children.
