Trapper

Do we live in a prison or playground?

Four performers battle each other inside a series of giant sculptural machines, hoping to discover the proof of free will.

Using slam poetry and demanding physical agility, Trapper investigates the complex relationship humans have with the systems we embrace, inhabit and fight against.

Created by Christian Leavesley and Jolyon James, with writing by playwright, Angus Cerini, and poet, Emilie Zoey Baker, Trapper is aimed at young adults (14+).

Trapper world premiered in August 2017 at Arts Centre Melbourne.
