Riverside presents PYT Fairfield and Force Majeure’s
A Performing Lines tour

“It’s a joy to watch young people overcome life’s hurdles by hurdling over life.” – Australian Stage

Jump First, Ask Later is a high-octane urban portrait of the streets of Western Sydney.

Featuring members of the Dauntless Movement Crew and directed by acclaimed choreographer Byron Perry, this multi award-winning show tells the stories of six young champions of Fairfield’s underground parkour and street style community.

Urban freestyle, b-boying, parkour and dance intersect to create a killer theatre experience about finding your path by jumping over life’s obstacles.

Suitable for: Ages 10+ and their families

FYI this production contains some loud music
