'Jump First, Ask Later: Parkour from the Streets of Fairfield' is an urban choreographic portrait of the streets of Fairfield in Western Sydney, the most culturally diverse region in Australia. This work will tell the collective stories of six young people, champions of Fairfield’s underground parkour and street style community. The work 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 they discovered by mapping their city through dance.
