Screening: Jump First and Ask Later (Australia)
Jump First, Ask Later is an urban choreographic portrait of the streets of Fairfield, the most culturally diverse region in Australia. DMC are a group who are dedicated to the philosophies and movement practices of parkour. This work tells the collective stories of six young members of DMC, aged between 18-24 years, who live in Fairfield and who all share proud Asian and Middle Eastern cultural heritages. This new dance work ultimately highlights their deep connection to each other, to their individual cultural backgrounds and to their city of Fairfield.
