First Things First

first_things-longFROM one of Australia’s most innovative performing artists comes First Things First – a one-man show of technically virtuoso dance and hilarious physical theatre that explores the art of ‘getting used to it’.

Joseph Simons blasted onto the international dance scene winning the Outstanding Emerging Artist Award for WA AusDance in 2009, since then, he has toured the world with many of Australia’s major dance companies, including the enormously popular Chunky Move.

Now, you can catch him live performing his own special brand of dance theatre, in an evening of firsts you’ll never forget at Frankston Arts Centre on Saturday 7 March.

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 in this mind-blowing display of physicality with his signature charm and wit.

First Things First begins in the foyer of Cube 37, where Joseph is hosting a party for all his friends – you! This is your chance to meet Joseph, have a chat, and be introduced to other members of the audience. Then head into the Cube theatre to watch Joseph doing what he does best!

Joseph will also spend a week at Cube 37 rehearsing and perfecting his show as well as running a number of community workshops. First Things First is also (very aptly) the first in the season of “Make’n’ Move Frankston”, a dance initiative for creators and audiences alike.

Make ‘n Move Frankston will present a broad range of contemporary dance performances and engagement opportunities for dance makers and the general community over the next two years. The project is funded by the Australia Council for the Arts. Make’n’ Move Frankston include workshops, artist residencies, professional development, Q&As and industry nights.

There’s no better way than Simons return home to perform First Things First at the FAC to kickstart the Make’n’ Move Frankston initiative.

There’s a first time for everything! Don’t miss your chance to experience the physical comedy showman in action.
