SEA Productions We believe it is our role to foster in young people a desire to explore, discover, invent and learn different ways of performing and provide opportunities for them to do so.

In a small Australian town, Marsh, Teddy, Poe and Ollie make an unlikely ring of mates. Marsh, a leader, Teddy, headstrong and righteous, Poe, not much at all and Ollie, the town’s black sheep. Four of them go camping, in the early days of one summer and when only three of them return, they begin turning on themselves, each asking the other “Who’s to blame?”

Written and Directed by Southern Edge Art’s emerging playwright Sam Kemp, A Place Not To Stray was a contemporary drama exploring judgement, friendship and loyalties.

SEA transformed the interior of the SEA Central theatre into the interior of the brain in this multi-art form production created especially for Mental Health Week. Performed by the senior SEA members from Puppetry, Drama, Circus, Aerials, Street Acrobatics and Lighting & Sound Tech.

Developed for 'Express It', Amity Health’s week long festival of arts and mental health, this youth devised performance brought together many of the performance arts offered at Southern Edge Arts and took the audience on a physical and emotional journey through the mind.

Mind Over Matter showcased dreams, hopes, nightmares and memories that are stored in the brain from young children through to adulthood. Using circus, theatre, parkour and multi media, Mind Over Matter explored mindfulness and the role of the brain in wellbeing and health for young people.

Southern Edge Arts’ talented Theatre Ensemble and CircaSEA Troupe (our senior youth performers) collaborated on a unique performance that was a real Game Changer.

Blending aerial and circus arts with contemporary youth theatre, Game Changer explored the journey of life and the opportunities, obstacles and challenges that shape our youth today.

Based on youth devised monologues that capture the many moments in a young person's life; good or bad, big or small, Game Changer was a performance is about acceptance, resilience and embracing change as a powerful antidote to the ever-challenging world of a teenage life.

This contemporary performance was both confronting and visually spectacular, as an eclectic collaboration between theatre and aerial acrobatics the performance blended seamlessly into one cohesive experience. The audience was provided with a rare insight into the mechanics of young minds at their most vulnerable stages. No longer children but not yet adults, Game Changer was as unpredictable as life itself.
