“A wonderful gratifying experience.” -The Age

A table of food tells eloquent stories … of celebration and conflict, of joy and tribulation, of colourful pasts and confounding presents. Acrobat invites an intimate audience to share a communal meal, music and stories with jazz singer, psychologist and passionate cook David Chong. Born on the outskirts of Sydney to travelling Chinese acrobats, David grew up in a Confucian household in Brazil, returning to Australia as an adult, speaking Portuguese, Cantonese, and very little English. Acrobat is David’s personal tale of the contemporary cultural mosaic: a high-wire dance across continents on the sounds of Brazil and the aromas of the world. The song of a circus son.

Produced by the acclaimed Melbourne-based performance makers A is for Atlas, Acrobat is an organic and interactive experience of shared food, memories, and human histories. This event is part of the much loved Dining Room Tales project created by Xan Colman, and features live music by Chong and his co-composer, jazz guitarist Nathan Slater.
