Australia’s Strange Fruit will be flying into Discovery Green on September 20 – 22, 2013 to perform a fusion of theatre, dance and circus perched atop 14-foot tall flexible poles. During this return return engagement, the artistic troupe will be at and will perform their work “Swoon!” on the Jones Lawn suspended above the audience and will also be hosting a Master Class Workshop open to children aged 12 and older.
“Swoon!” is a spirited performance featuring four daredevils telling a spectacular story of love, loss, joy and freedom. Australia’s Strange Fruit troupe performers bend and sway in the air to seemingly impossible angles, creating a hypnotizing dance that audiences watch from below.
On Sunday, Sept 22 at 12:30PM., join company members of Australia’s Strange Fruit as they hold a Master Class workshop. The Master Class workshop will include a warm up, a dance/movement, theater, improv and clown session. This workshop is open to children 12 years of age and older with an interest in movement, dancing and acting looking to push themselves in the art of dialogue-free storytelling. Note there will be no poles or aerial movement, because of the nature of the apparatus. This is a ground based workshop. Space is limited, so please rsvp at twww.discoverygreen.com/asf .
Established in 1994, Australia's Strange Fruit is a much-celebrated touring company that creates and performs a unique style of performance for audiences worldwide. Founded originally in Melbourne, Australia, the group has performed in more than 50 different countries at international festivals and events.
