Direct from the vibrant streets of Western Sydney, Jump First, Ask Later is a multi-award-winning, choreographic thrill-ride that will bring the danger and creativity of parkour from the streets and on to the Riverside Theatres stage.
Featuring six founding members of the Dauntless Movement Crew and originally directed by acclaimed choreographer Byron Perry, this high-octane show draws on the real-life experiences of these six young champions of Fairfield’s underground parkour and street-style community to create a heartfelt, high-energy slice of life from Western Sydney youth of today.
Jump Frist, Ask Later 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 these artists discovered by mapping their city through dance.
Jump First, Ask Later teams profound personal stories with extraordinary, heart-stopping tricks, flips and moves to create a thrilling, modern and inspiring all-ages performance experience that is truly one of a kind.
