Experience Collider

In October 2019, CircusWA and DADAA premiered a multi-disciplinary collaborative performance project,  Experience Collider, at the AWESOME International Arts Festival for Bright Young Things. In this production 28 young people journeyed together as they moved through the Experience Collider.  Each person explored it differently:  some moved suspended in the air, in chairs or on wheeled platforms. Others sang, signed or carried lights and video cameras. They needed to find a way through the Collider as a group, each taking turns but always together.

This unique performance was developed with CircusWA’s Youth Troupes in partnership with DADAA’s teenagers with high support needs. Experience Collider was a groundbreaking inclusive performance using circus, dance, theatre and film. It was the study of a Telethon Kids Institute Quality of Life Study which you can read here; head to pages 60-62 to see how art improves lives. You can also read the full evaluation report here.

Circulate Y16+

Circulate Y16+ runs from 11am-12pm on Tuesdays during the school term. This program has been designed to support young people at risk of or emerging from homelessness. Focusing on self-directed skill development and community building, the Y16+ program has been created in collaboration with APM Communities, Ruah, Fremantle Mind, The City of Fremantle, Life Without Barriers (Ngatti House) and Anglicare (Y-Shac).
