Responsive Research Program Resident 2005, 2008 and 2015
Branch Nebula (Lee Wilson and Mirabelle Wouters) is one of Australia’s most adventurous companies, pushing at the boundaries of performance. Working at the nexus between theatre, dance, sport and street-styles, Branch Nebula takes audiences into the extreme creativity of urban landscapes, and immerses them in real time experiences.
Branch Nebula works with non-conventional performers to collaboratively devise work that defies categorization. They interrogate the audience experience and explore contemporary culture as a means of creating access and speaking to a broad audience. They work with street-style artists to create new visions for engaging with street-styles like BMX, skating, parkour, tricking, and contemporary dance.
Recently, Branch Nebula toured Snake Sessions around six skateparks in regional Australia, curated Swarm for Campbeltown Art Centre’s live art program, and developed Foodfight with artist, Diego Bonetto for the MCA’s C3West. They toured a collaboration with Wade Marynowsky, the Robot Opera, to Taiwan. Other productions include Artwork, Whelping Box, and Concrete And Bone Sessions.
