Airness by Chelsea Marcantel
Presented by Knock & Run Theatre

An exuberant reminder that everything we need to rock is already inside us. 

When Nina enters her first air guitar competition, she thinks winning will be easy. But as she befriends a group of charismatic nerds, all committed to becoming the next champion, she discovers there’s more to this art form than playing pretend; it’s about finding yourself in your favourite songs and performing with raw joy. Will Nina be able to let go and set herself free onstage?  

Following Nina’s mission to shred or be shredded, Airness is an exuberant reminder that everything we need to rock is already inside us. 

Featuring Marissa Saroca as Cannibal Queen, James Chapman as Shreddy Eddy and an ensemble of Newcastle's finest young performers. Airness is a theatrical musical event not to be missed! 

This show is presented as part of Season 2022 and the New Annual Festival.
