Now Departing

A Movement of Humans

Acrobatic Performance

Now Departing is an outdoor acrobatic show that tells eclectic short stories from the carriage of a train.

In  a specially designed acrobatic train compartment, the actors perform  incredible physical feats, as each station they stop becomes a new  reality. The train relentlessly creates stranger and stranger realities  for the characters as they are driven head-first into realms of  limitless possibilities and perpetual surprise.

Stemming  from the visceral monotony of everyday public transport, the show will  take the audience on a journey into the fantastical and the absurd in  the way that only Nouveau Cirque can. Train doors become carousels, handrails become high bars, and other passengers become climbing frames. The  show wishes to inspire a sense of wonderment and imagining in our  public spaces as well as celebrating the collaborative act of sharing a  common space. By  re-imagining the mundane environment of the train carriage, we hope to  inspire people to not only utilize public transport more often but to  also relish the unique bonding experience of travelling at high speeds  with a group of perfect strangers in a secluded metal compartment! Is  a train not a space where we can take a moment away from our busy lives  and imagine how the world would look if our daydreams actually became  real?

Performers: James Kingsford-Smith, Elli Huber, Joshua Frazer, Jess Gardolin, Frank Marshall, Lucian McGuiness
