Originating from the tiny Victorian town of Yackandandah, David began dance, acrobatics and music at the age of 8 before being accepted into the prestigious performing arts institution Flying Fruit Fly Circus School at the age of 10. Trained extensively by Russian, Chinese and Australian masters including Lu Guang Rang (NICA) and Kim Walker (NAISDA), he has performed on some of the biggest stages and festivals in Australia and abroad.
David is also an original member of Briefs, has performed as a member of the Tom Tom Crew and was a co-creator and performer in Cantina before founding Company 2 in 2012. His accolades include the prestigious Green Room Award, a nomination for the Total Theatre Award, the Melbourne Fringe Award, and the Adelaide Fringe Award.
A stunning and poetic circus theatre piece, ‘Underground’ is inspired by excerpts from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Notes from the Underground’.
The piece is an abstract expedition through the layers of human desires and motives: a look at what lies beneath, at what really drives us, in the search for truth. A reflection on the quirky, comical and sometimes dark nature of the human disposition to always question. To push, to pull, to strive, to fall; and to push again.
Featuring breathtaking acrobatic skills,‘Underground’ is a fusion of movement and live music, set to an original score featuring a typewriter, glass bottles, sand and other interesting and unusual instruments.
