Coming soon….

Shaun Parker & Company and CAPTIVATE are busy in rehearsals for their forthcoming season of The Yard, playing at Arts Centre Melbourne.

Winner of an Australian Dance Award and the 2013 Helpmann Nominee for Best Presentation for Children, The Yard is a high-octane piece of self devised theatre, featuring 20 Western Sydney migrant teenagers.

A voice against bullying, The Yard delivers a compelling new take on William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, which will leave you thinking about human behaviour long after the curtain comes down.

“I have to truly applaud The Yard…with great attention to emotional detail; it is remarkable.” ABC Radio
