Dance, Special Event Australia
Shaun Parker & Company


Free Event

After watching Back to the Future we all dreamed hoverboards would be a thing. Well now you can discover pop-up dance performances on hoverboards in venues across Darwin.

Five exceptional dance and physical theatre artists perform masterfully crafted roving dance routines on hoverboards. The fun, high-energy choreography is inspired by circus and street dance forms like breakdance, tutting, popping and krumping. Paying homage to boy bands throughout history, HOVER is set to a variety of music genres, including pop hits, classical music and stunning original scores by composer Nick Wales.

Shaun Parker & Company is one of Australia’s most far-reaching dance companies, having toured extensively internationally to 21 counties across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the United States. Their brand-new outdoor dance spectacle HOVER invites you to explore public spaces in a different way as you enjoy some edgy and entertaining dance routines!

Experience HOVER at Casuarina Square on Saturday 14 August and Festival Park on Tuesday 17 August and watch out for more places that HOVER will visit throughout the Festival.

  • Artistic Director & Choreographer Shaun Parker
