Nature Strip laments the righteous, reckless, greedy and careless ways in which humans suck the life from the natural world. Nature Strip considers our contradictory relationship to other animals and pays tribute to 8 of those on Australia's long list of critically endangered species.

Presented at Gasworks Theatre, November 2008

review quote

"... an unaffected, spirited little number... Nature Strip is neatly composed yet manages to retain a womderful sense of spontaneity. The tension builds steadily with the push and pull of the choreohgraphy before breaking into a liberated final scene..."
