Nerve

THURSDAY 16 SEPTEMBER - 8:30PM

Through the complex tussle of truths and commodifications of her identity, Lauren Watson asks ‘do you have the nerve?’ in a thrilling autobiographical aerial theatre show.

Where compelling contemporary circus acts and choreography meets high energy physical theatre, Watson explores the fears, triumphs and complexities of everyday living.

This bold new work uncovers trauma, grief, discrimination, and disability identity in this awe-inspiring world premiere that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

“Not only can I defy gravity with aerial performances, but my show Nerve will challenge society’s expectations of people with disability, and start a conversation about how we can all advocate for artists with disability in Australia."
