Hip-hop dance meets gaming technology in this ground-breaking work harnessing captivating new technology called AirSticks, which create live sound through movement.

Conceived by award-winning choreographer Shaun Parker and digital sound designer Alon Ilsar, In the Zone is not only fun and exciting theatre – it also empowers young audiences to consider themes such as technology, man-made global warming, personal choice and resilience.

In the Zone places the Airsticks in the hands of phenomenal Western Sydney hip-hop dancer Libby Montilla, who triggers electronic soundscapes as he makes his way through the various levels of a video game. Locking, popping, body-ticking and krumping are inspired by the stunning soundscape which includes crunchy electronica, atmospheric strings, funky drum loops and the sounds of birds, ocean waves and nature – all intrinsically linked to Libby’s outstanding body animation and storytelling.

In the Zone is a stunning journey.
