Dauntless Movement Crew (DMC) is a troupe of young performers who will challenge what you thought you knew about gravity, physics, and human capabilities. They began as a small group of disenfranchised but determined young people in Fairfield who used their combined skills in dance and gymnastics as well as a unique fusion of parkour, breakdance, acrobatics and circus skills to create performance pieces that are utterly jaw-dropping. The group has flourished into a world-renowned, award-winning organisation that tours entertainment circuits, performs in schools, provides workshops, and even did a TEDx talk.
Adding narrative and context to their physical performance, six founding members have devised an exciting show called Jump First, Ask Later, which will have a limited run at Riverside Theatres. Through electrifying choreography, the performers will reveal elements of their personal stories, elements that include violence, migration, redemption, and ultimate independence and freedom. It’s an awe-inspiring experience for kids of all ages as well as adults. A free workshop is also being held on May 22 for Jump First, Ask Later ticket holders but numbers are strictly limited so book early.
Come and see this amazing young team of performers – you’ll be bouncing off the walls afterwards!
May 23. Riverside Theatres, Cnr Church & Market Streets, Parramatta. $21-$32+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.riversideparramatta.com.au
