Rogue Play aerial theatre: Forests

August 4th,11:00 am - 4:30 pm

Rogue Play Theatre… incldued with admission – no need to book

Forests is an outdoor 25 minute family friendly dance/acrobatic show, about the displacement of Indigenous peoples through the destruction of the rainforest.

A willow tree, fiery acrobatics and dance feature in this highly-visual family-friendly show.

Forests packs a powerful punch, challenging forestry practices, our over-consumption of timber, the destruction of rainforests, and the displacement of indigenous peoples. Performers climb and manipulate the tree, the acrobatic dance sees them throwing, clambering and trampling one another, whilst ropes entangle and bind, before the tree is finally felled amid an explosion of tree-less origami birds. 

Forests confronts the systemic racism driving the creation of ‘treeless land’, whilst exposing the futility of losing precious resources for ‘fleeting’ products such as toilet paper. We particularly strive to inspire a young future of courageous, strong young people, particularly girls, as well as inspire finding unique connections with others and thoughtful connections with nature.

Performances included with admission...    11 am and 2pm  (no need to book)
