High Performance Packing Tape

Branch Nebula (Australia)
3 performances between Fri 17 & Sat 18 May 2024

Celebrated Australian company Branch Nebula employs everyday materials—stationery, cardboard, clingfilm—to place a performer in a series of mind-bending predicaments.

Climbing towers that will inevitably collapse; dangling in the air from materials doomed to stretch and then snap; balancing precariously on structures made of party decorations: High Performance Packing Tape is risk management as edge-of-the-seat madness.  

As cheap materials are pushed to breaking point, inevitable equipment failure looms, and physical danger is always imminent, safety and wellbeing are de-prioritised in new and liberating ways.



Commissioned by Performance Space for the 2018 Liveworks Festival. Branch Nebula is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
