Trapper: Creative Learning

Part dance, part poetry. A must see exploration of the modern age. 

In the Studio

“Moving, thought provoking, engaging, artistic and wonderful. I loved it.”

Young Adult Audience Member, Melbourne Premiere Season

NSW Curriculum Links:

Do we live in a prison or playground?    

Four performers battle each other inside giant sculptural machines, hoping to discover the proof of free will.

Using slam poetry and demanding physical agility, the performers make their arguments, simultaneously asking: “are we in control or being controlled?” Trapper investigates the complex relationship humans have with the systems we embrace, inhabit and fight against.

Part dance, part poetry with inventive design and technology, Trapper is a must see exploration of the modern age. 

Presented by Sydney Opera House and Arena Theatre Company
