From one of Australia's most innovative performing artists comes First Things First - a one-man show of technically virtuosic dance and hilarious physical theatre that explores the art of 'getting used to it'.

Joseph Simons blasted onto the international dance scene winning the Outstanding Emerging Artist Award for WA AusDance in 2009, since then, he has toured the world with many of Australia's major dance companies, including the enormously popular Chunky Move.

Now, you can catch him live performing his own special brand of dance theatre, in an evening of firsts you'll never forget!

Do you remember your first day of school? The first time you rode a bike? Your first kiss? The first time is always memorable. But then you do it a second time, then a third. Suddenly, it's second nature. Join award-winning performer Joseph Simons in this mind-blowing display of physicality with his signature charm and wit.

First Things First begins in the foyer of the theatre, where Joseph is hosting a party for all his friends - you! This is your chance to meet Joseph, have a chat, and be introduced to other members of the audience. Then head into the theatre to watch Joseph doing what he does best!Following critically acclaimed seasons in Berlin and New York, Simons is thrilled to return home to perform First Things First for Australian audiences.

You've never seen a dance show like this before. But there's a first time for everything! Don't miss your chance to experience the physical comedy showman in action.
