Pivotal Points Theatrical Performance by Jay Emmanuel
Come check out Pivotal Points an exciting and ground breaking theatrical performance by Jay Emmanuel. From the imagination of young theatre-makers comes an original new work, born from a simple question – What is the moment that changed your life?
Pivotal Points explores personal stories of transformation through theatrical episodes that reflect on our common desire for change, at once beautiful and macabre, brimming with humour, honesty and dilemmas. Set as a festival of short performances, Pivotal Points will use the entire Curtin University Campus as its stage, activating ordinary spaces in innovative ways.
The tour begins at Elizabeth Jolley Garden adjacent to the Vege Patch Café at Curtin University.
