Come see some of Australia’s amazing improvisers! Precipice is a 3 day event that brings together experienced improvisers with a diverse range of practices and styles from all around Australia. Watch them weave narrative, sound and movement to create unbelievable illusory worlds of story.

It has been running for 20 years in Canberra and provides a wonderful opportunity to work with peers and perform for each other over the course of 3 days – to watch, discuss, collaborate, investigate, and practise.

There will be a workshop each morning, “in-house” performance events in the afternoon, and evening performances open to the public. This is a great opportunity for performers to show their improvising in a fully equipped performance space and under theatre lights.

Friday 1st September 7pm *
Saturday 2nd September 7pm & 9pm **
Sunday 3rd September 4:30pm

* The Friday performance is followed by a public forum titled:
“Authenticity, Artifice & Authorship in Performance Improvisation”
Mark Gordon, Tony Osborne, Dr Dianne Reid and Peter Trotman

** The Saturday performance is followed (at 9pm) by a spoken word and dance collaboration with Canberra’s improvising musicians. Curated by Richard Johnson & Tony Osborne.
** SEE BOTH 7pm & 9pm SHOWS for $15
