Jump First, Ask Later

Parkour from the streets of Fairfield

is an urban choreographic portrait of the streets of Fairfield in Western Sydney, the most culturally diverse region in Australia. This work will tell the collective stories of six young people, champions of Fairfield’s underground parkour and street style community.

The work merges urban freestyle forms with contemporary dance to create a physical narrative that explores the poetics of violence, migration, redemption and ultimately the collective freedom they discovered by mapping their city through dance.

At the heart of parkour is a mindset of creativity. A notion that the obstacles you encounter shouldn’t be avoided but rather deliberately engaged with in order to find your path – ‘jump first, ask questions later’.
