Styckx Theatre – Playground

Styckx Theatre Playground…. a symphony of sound, a playground of possibility and home of Mr Styckx and his bamboo world, inspiring awe and delight through a series of completely new theatre experiences made by the Natimuk community and Y Space through a process of exploring, experimenting, learning and co-creating together.

Based on an epic Styckx poem that has emerged through the development process, this fourth development of Styckx Theatre at Nati Frinj Biennale focuses on the structure as playground.

Key to this exploration is the engagement of a regional community in exciting co-creation workshops that experiment with the structure as playground concept, while also building skills in aerial, circus, physical theatre, music and bamboo construction.

All this energy and endeavour is captured in the three different half hour community performance studies
1) X- the study of Now and Then
2) Y- the study of Up and Down
3) Z- the study of Here and There.

Each Axis of this playground, X,Y, Z combine…
Measuring Time and Space and Gravity;
All essential elements to a playgrounds good design
Where actions’ driving function is the key.
