at The Arty Farty Party

Saturday 2 July | 20 mins each

FOUND OBJECTS is an epic outdoor dance theatre work utilising everyday objects and five exceptional dance and physical theatre artists. Choreographed by Shaun Parker and set to a stunning orchestral score by composer Nick Wales, (Sydney Symphony, Sydney Dance Company, Sarah Blasko, SBS, ABC), the work creates a highly physical, extraordinary urban world incorporating high-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics, street dance, parkour and seemingly ordinary objects. FOUND OBJECTS is made up of four completely wordless, but narratively rich, works - TROLLEYS, HOVER, AXLE, and SPIN. 

HOVER - An outdoor work with five dancers on Hoverboards, using breakdance, tutting, popping and krumping, in a humorous homage to Pop-Groups throughout the ages.

AXLE - a duet between a parkour performer and a remote-control car featuring a stunning elecro-acoustic score. A dancer is chased by a seemingly out-of-control remote-control car. Soon, the dancer realises the remote-control car is actually looking for friendship, and a series of epic and acrobatic vignettes ensue.

SPIN - four friends playing basketball discover new and exciting worlds in an adventure that sees one ordinary basketball become the centre of an imaginative and thrilling adventure.

TROLLEYS - Part dance. Part ballet. Part outdoor spectacle. Trolleys spin, glide and slide in this highly physical outdoor performance work where high-octane contemporary dance, parkour, acrobatics and street dance merge with the extraordinary world of the trolleys. 

Lead work TROLLEYS had its premiere in the London Cultural Olympiad, and has since toured throughout the United Kingdom, Spain, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Egypt, Malaysia and New Zealand to over 200,000 spectators.

- Winner of the Argus Angel Award, in recognition of Artistic Excellence at Brighton Festival and Fringe.

★★★★★ Set to a pulsating score, it was heart warming and heart-breaking at the same time. This was art accessible for the masses.
