SKATE is a ground-breaking new work in development fusing the art of skateboarding with percussion and projection.

A breathtaking sensory experience for all the family, SKATE sees a cast of talented male and female skateboarders perform jaw-dropping feats and create infectious rhythms with their skateboards.
In 2019, SKATE was in residence at the Cutaway at Barangaroo, which saw over 1600 skateboarders from across Sydney engage with the project and over 5000 people activate the space.

SKATE – the Show
A highly commercial touring performance piece, SKATE is pure performance spectacle combining skateboarding, percussion, movement and projection as never seen before. Be transported as skateboarders roll out intricate beats and paint the stage with light using state-of-the-art technology. Expressions of interest welcome from venues and festivals.

SKATE Halfpipe
SKATE Halfpipe is a new interdisciplinary touring work, designed to go anywhere, unfolding out of a shipping container to become a spectacular performance work meeting young people where they are. SKATE Halfpipe is a platform to reach out to young people in the mental health space, through co-creation, participation and performance. SKATE Halfpipe will tour to NW Tasmania in 2020.

SKATE – Social Impact Investment
