Branch Nebula

Snake Sessions

Created by Mirabelle Wouters and Lee Wilson


Sydney company Branch Nebula returns with its Helpmann Award winning street-style choreography and unique engagement process. Taking up residency for a full week in the local skate park of each town, the Branch Nebula team will be jamming moves and tricks with the locals in the build up to a spectacular improvised performance at the end of each week. Touring in 2018 and available to tour in 2019.

The work was absolutely outstanding and delivers as pure community engagement of the highest quality. Keep delivering this strongly impactful work!

With a live drummer driving the action, bodies and wheels collide, race each other, and blur into one. Branch Nebula and its team of professional skaters, BMX riders, dancers and parkourists have wowed audiences from Sydney Festival to Hong Kong, Finland and Chile – now it’s time to tour Australia.

Snake Sessions brings an audience to a skate park to share an experience of urban culture as a powerfully dramatic and artistic experience, and a celebration of its virtuosity and inventiveness.

REVIEWS and Feedback

"Circus for the fearless, the urban. A beautiful portrait of human defiance, of connection, of adrenaline."

“Great artists, great show, great week! The local dancers and skaters who were involved throughout the week thoroughly enjoyed their experience.”

“You guys should know how much of an impact you had on my boys and the skatepark. Thankyou for an amazing experience, it was awesome! I hope you all keep inspiring kids and give more and more of them a chance to express themselves and be free – The world needs more people like you guys.”
