First Things First

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Joseph Simons

After premiering in New York, this hilarious and technically astounding dance piece is ready to be your ‘first’.

Do you remember your first day of school? The first time you rode a bike? Your first kiss? The first time is always memorable. But then you do it a second time, then a third. Suddenly, it’s second nature.

Join award-winning performer Joseph Simons as he explores the art of ‘getting used to it’ in this mind-blowing display of virtuosic dance and physical theatre.

This event is part of MELT: A Celebration of Queer Arts and Culture 2016.
