BUBBLE is a collaboration between choreographer Shaun Parker and award-winning bubble artist Su Chung Tai, that tells a timely tale. Expanding on the zeitgeist of teen climate activism, a teenage girl guides us through the evolution of and fight against global warming.  She tells us how humans came to covet progress, questions the consequences, and sounds like a battle cry to save our future.

Led by live Steadicam footage our narrative follows the journey of a bubble to an epic climax in an exquisitely choreographed single-shot, alongside seven extraordinary dancers and singers, transforming the stage into a spectacular live cinema.

Vocal music & narrative borrowed from diverse cultures, create dynamic thematic patterns all dealing with the notion of ‘mother earth’. Part contemporary dance theatre, Part visual arts, Part narrated fairy tale, BUBBLE features an array of elemental devices including mist, laser and smoke, signifying human’s complex relationships with technology and the environment.

The development of this major new work will include community consultation, residency, exchange and creative developments in Sydney and Taiwan. The Creative Development process for BUBBLE also included BUBBLE INTERACT  live-streamed community workshops during 2021 with support from the City of Sydney and the City of Ryde.
