Snake Sessions

Snake Sessions

Sydney company Branch Nebula brings their breath-taking, anarchic street-style performance to the Alex Head’s skate park.

Branch Nebula’s team will infiltrate the 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, from Mandurah to the Gold Coast, winning the prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Visual or Physical Theatre Production. Now it’s the Sunshine Coast’s turn!

To be involved, just drop in to Alex Headlands skate park during the week Tue 27 - Fri 30 Aug, 10:00am – 4:30pm + Sat 31 Aug 2-5pm.

Don't miss the final performance on Sat 31 Aug at 5pm.

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