This engaging production asks the big questions

Using slam poetry and captivating displays of physical agility, Trapper sees four performers battle for an understanding of free will inside impressive sculptural machines that loom over the stage. The performance targets teenagers moving into adulthood who are surrounded by a world of artifice and false realities, drawing on themes of surveillance culture, social media use and the existence of free will. The work comes to the Opera House for a limited season features writing from playwright Angus Cerini and poet Emilie Zoey Baker, and is sure to keep you talking long after the final curtain falls.
