SNAP is a dynamic aerial and physical theatre performance that continues the tradition of SEAs ground breaking multi art form productions. SNAP follows young Ben through various stages of his childhood and adolescence as he grows into a man. It’s about a boy who becomes a young man, and a young man who makes a mistake. It’s a night out… with consequences. It’s a car crash – the impact, flashing backwards and forwards in time. It’s about being young an old simultaneously.
Sally Richardson, award-winning Australian physical theatre and circus director directed ‘Snap!’, a show about the choices we make in the heat of the moment and the impact they can have upon on our lives. Sally just finished directing ‘Lucy and the Lost Boy’, which features final year NICA Circus arts students.
This performance utilised the strengths, interest and talent of SEA members to exciting effect, exploring the place where contemporary dance and aerial circus meet. Participants aged 9 yrs up to 19yrs, beginners to advanced took part in these exciting workshops. Students broadened their skills in contemporary performing arts including dance, drama and aerials.
