    "Playful, exploratory, gregarious and thoughtful"

  • The Trios

    1. ESCAPE by Rosie Gilmore and Alex Wright
    Do they want to escape? Where do they want to get to? How did they become trapped? Two performers, a paddling
    pool and a whole heap of balls

    2. EXPECTATIONS by Sam Bowler, Paris Thorner and Sam McKay
    Spoken word and movement meet to explore themes of expectations and the pressures felt by youth

    3. COMMON ETIQUETTE by Alice Cheersmith, Elizabeth Thomson and Miriam Qualls
    With a mix of ‘50s pop songs and pent-up housewives, Common Etiquette is jaunty, nostalgic and passiveaggressive
    as hell. One sitting room isn’t big enough for three very different, determined women... until they discover
    that they have more in common than they thought.

    4. THAT NIGHT WHEN…. by Grace Newton, Jacob Banks and Patrick James
    Experience the surreal qualities of a great party alongside the feeling and the music of the ‘80s.
    We think the music is a bop!

    5. NOIR by Harrison Searancke, Craig Pope and Daniel Mathers

    6. MOVEMENT By Todd Anderson and Abbi Hope Thomas

    7. THE LIST By Kathryn Ford, Alice Taylor and Isabelle Kennedy (only performed on Saturday shows)
