The 2013 AWESOME Festival and Buzz Dance Theatre in association with Shaun Parker & Company present
By Shaun Parker. Composed by Nick Wales. Performed by Buzz Dance Theatre.
Australia | 12–14 Oct | Perth Cultural Centre Amphitheatre
AWESOME Festival and Buzz Dance Theatre present award winning Australian choreographer Shaun Parker’s new outdoor work… Trolleys – the ballet.
Part dance. Part ballet. Part outdoor spectacle. Trolleys is a new ballet for five supermarket trolleys. Five shopping carts randomly appear in a public space. Two meet and fall in love.
A lone cart grapples to find a friend. Three others revolt and ignite a dance of anarchy. Trolleys spin, glide and slide in this highly physical outdoor performance work where high-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics and street dance merge with the extraordinary world of the trolleys.
Set to a pounding electro-acoustic score by award winning composer Nick Wales, Trolleys will pull at your heart-strings and tease your mind. Trolleys was originally commissioned by the Without Walls Consortium and performed and produced by C-12 Dance Theatre and Shaun Parker & Company.

Goodbye Jamie Boyd
Based on the verse novel by Elizabeth Fensham
Creatively developed and produced by Buzz Dance Theatre and Monkey Baa Theatre Company
Directed by Sandra Eldridge and Cadi McCarthy
Recommended for year groups 8-12
“My Spirit is as dry
as a creekbed in drought-
baked earth with cracks
like a fractured skull.”
Teenagers grapple today with a variety of issues such as drug use, mental illness and self-harm. Goodbye Jamie Boyd is a heart-felt, yet honest poetic story incorporating multi-media, dance and spoken text, tackling these issues and more.
“Wow! I can honestly say that Goodbye Jamie Boyd was one of the best theatre experiences I have had. It was inspiring. The design and use of multi-media was brilliant and haunting. The students were enthralled. They were absolutely speechless. This needs to be taken on a tour around the country. Fantastic youth theatre!"
