PRESENTED BY BRANCH NEBULA AND INTIMATE SPECTACLE

SNAKE SESSIONS

Spectacular street-style performance made with local skatepark participants in a one week residency.

The Branch Nebula team infiltrates and inhabits a skate park for a week, jamming moves and tricks with the locals to create a breathtaking anarchic street-style performance. With a live drummer driving the action, bodies and wheels collide, race each other and blur into one.

Branch Nebula and its team of professional skaters, BMX riders, dancers and parkourists have wowed audiences from Sydney Festival to Hong Kong, Finland to Chile. Snake Sessions brings an audience to a skate park to share urban culture as a powerfully dramatic and artistic experience and a celebration of its virtuosity and inventiveness.

Branch Nebula Inc.

Branch Nebula is one of Australia’s most adventurous companies. Working at the nexus between theatre, dance, sport and street styles, the company pushes the boundaries of performance, taking audiences into the extreme creativity of urban landscapes and immersing them in real time experiences.

Branch Nebula works with non-conventional performers to collaboratively devise work defying categorisation. By working with street-style artists they create new visions for engaging with BMX, skating, parkour, tricking and dance.

Branch Nebula recently toured Snake Sessions to eight skateparks from regional towns to major cities, winning a Helpmann Award (Best Visual or Physical Theatre Production). Their other work includes Artwork, the Helpmann Award-winning Whelping Box and Concrete & Bone Sessions.
