FREE WORKSHOPS FOR LOCAL YOUTH AT NEW SKATE PARK

Looking for some extreme fun after school? Search no further, as stellar street style performers Branch Nebula hit Griffith’s brand new skate park for a week of high-energy, free workshops.

From Tuesday 11 September, 2018 until Friday 14 September, 2018 from 3pm to 6pm locals can learn all the moves to shred it like a professional at the Snake Sessions workshops. 

The excitement doesn’t stop there as Branch Nebula kicks it up a notch as part of MY SKATE on Saturday, 15 September with free skate and parkour workshops from 11am and slick Snake Sessions performance from 2pm. 

Want to get in on the action? Make sure you’re at the skate park at 11am on the day and you can be part of the gravity defying Snake Sessions performance that afternoon.

As MY FEST committee member Monique Peisley said “Branch Nebula’s workshops provide an amazing opportunity for local youth to learn incredible skills off talented professionals’’.

Described as “Circus for the fearless, the urban. A beautiful portrait of human defiance, of connection, of adrenalin.” (Australian Stage). Branch Nebula’s Snake Sessions brings an audience to a skate park to share an experience of urban culture as a powerfully dramatic and artistic experience. It extends the forms into new and innovative territory, challenging attitudes about performance and art.

Sydney performers Branch Nebula combine skating, BMX, parkour and dancing to create enigmatic works such as Paradise City and Bone & Concrete Sessions that break the creative norms.

MY FEST- Murrumbidgee Youth Xtreem Arts Festival Committee presents MY SKATE. Proudly supported by the Building Better Regions Fund.

Griffith Regional Theatre is a cultural facility of Griffith City Council and is proudly
