This is one of three routines that Jesse Rowles and I performed in our Physical Theatre show, "BroKen".
Working with cascading water was certainly thrilling, sometimes dangerous (slips n spills!), sometimes uncomfortable (upside down with water pumping up your nose!)... but all in all... certainly exhilirating and joyous!
Thank you to all who helped behind the scenes: milky rainmaker: Alexander Stevenson ~~ phenomenal camerman: Jonny Williams ~~ and all the strong helping hands: Nick Byrne, Duncan West and Kea Phang.
Music: "Little Things" by Trinity Roots / "I Can't Stand the Rain" by The Commitments

Don't BLINK or you will MISS it!!
ABC's award winning teen drama series, "Dance Academy" on ABC3, is firing up its second wave on 12 MARCH @6:30pm and I will be appearing in the GUEST role, "CHARLIE".
Day one saw the whole crew prepare outside FOX STUDIOS (Sydney) in front of a giant outdoor rig. As flying trapeze coach, I taught the young dancers the valuable lessons of jumping off, trusting their partners, letting go, and learning to fly! On Day Two, we were out at the real-life "Lennon Brother's Circus" BigTopTent where I tumbled and fell from the dizzying heights from a Tissu (learning a new drop trick in 2minutes before madly filming!! arghhh!).

I invited Steve along to a demolition site near my old home in St Peters... where we scrambled through the rubble, climbed up crumbling concrete and weaved our way through mangled metal to find some visually stunning and irresistable backdrops (like this firetorn wall with burnt-out pipings). Follow his weblink above to see the full album!
Also featuring my circus partner, Jesse Rowles!
