With every project we risk things blowing up in our faces. For Branch Nebula, that’s just the beginning.

High Performance Packing Tape is the OH&S nightmare that transforms everyday office consumables into the infrastructure of one person’s physical ruin. Performer Lee Wilson scales collapsing cardboard-box towers, hangs precariously from sticky-tape bridges unable to carry his weight and asks more of cheap materials than they’re ever able to give.

In this astounding show, cutting edge contemporary performance company Branch Nebula entrusts the future use of Lee’s neck to the dubious weight-bearing properties of the stationery cupboard and recycling bin. You’ll watch through parted fingers, thrill to his successes, wince at his failures and try hard to contain your uproarious laughter.

Collaborating artists Mirabelle Wouters, Mickie Quick, and Phil Downing along with Wilson have forged a performance that dares to ask “Is a life without danger worth living?” It’s messy, terrifying, deeply challenging to accepted notions of comfort and safety, and incredible fun. Bring plenty of teenagers but don’t let them near Officeworks afterwards.
