December delivers a narrative of a nation hard hit by
the climate crisis. Jake Silvestro’s fusion of acrobatics
and drawing are the vessel for this conversation.
"An exception full length solo performance, December, choreographed using a variety physical genres combined with a strong visual arts component and an underlying focus on issues concerning the disastrous bushfires that ravaged parts of Australia in December 2019" - Bill Stephens, Canberra Critics Circle 2022.
An award-winning physical theatre performance by Australian artist Jake Silvestro,
December explores themes of loss and isolation,
and the consequences of Australia’s 2019/2020 bushfires,
Silvestro creates hope amid a scene of ash and rubble.
Speaking to the resilience of our country hit hard during the ongoing climate crisis, this enthralling new work prompts reflection on our actions and wrestles with finding joy and memory amidst devastion.
