Spill - a playground of dance

Spill is touring in 2014!

Highly playful and physical, and at times teasingly comical – this is a cheeky dance celebration of the child within.

Combining quirky, dynamic dance with high energy street gymnastics, the dancers in this performance blaze a colourful trail across the structures and landscapes of the playground. Each performance will be unique, as the show scrambles around, over, under and through swings, slides and roundabouts. Kids will love it, grown-ups will love it too!

Spill is an outdoor production choreographed by celebrated Australian Artist Shaun Parker, of Shaun Parker & Company. Using the existing children’s playground equipment as the set, Spill was created specifically for parks, aiming to take dance to the heart of communities.

Spill was filmed, and broadcast on The Space in 2012. Watch one of the episodes - Frienemy:
