High Performance Packing Tape

Branch Nebula

Branch Nebula is one of Australia’s most adventurous arts companies. For the past 23 years, our nimble ensemble of creators has forged bold new audience experiences at the intersection of theatre, dance, sport and street cultures. From the intimate to the large-scale, we make performances in regional skate parks, abandoned shopping malls, as well as for international festivals and contemporary art centres.

Our collaborative process embodies the constantly inquisitive and we are energised by bringing our audiences along for a daring contemporary ride. Our raw and brutalist aesthetic draws its dynamism from our long-term engagement with street culture and looks to the intelligence of emerging cultural forms and the subtext of contemporary art movements, from shopping malls, street protests, and community events to breaking and skate competitions. We shape ideas and make work at the point of friction between materials, phenomenon, experience, and human bodies, in whatever venue it requires, with whatever tools are thrown up.

Our maverick reputation and approach to performance leads us to atypical audiences in unconventional and surprising locations. It has also honed decades of expertise in risk taking and helped craft a nimble and resilient company structure.
