  • Festivals:Perth Festival
  • Performing Arts:Theatre
  • Produced By:Black Swan State Theatre Company,Perth Festival

Description

This premium cheese platter of self-absorbed characters will have you at once wishing for the glorious blooming days of the 1980s and shrinking at the familiarity of it.

The final play written by Chekhov in his dying days was intended to be his most hilarious comedy. This adaptation takes the story from Russia in the 1880s and replants the orchard to a fictional late 1980s Manjimup in WA. From boom to bust, as the recession hit in 1987 and the America’s Cup put WA on the world stage, Madame Ranyevskya has to sell up and move out.

Venue capacity is small, so audiences get to experience this production across the Sunset Heritage Precinct, from in the family home in the former ballroom, flowing through to a sunset picnic under the gum trees overlooking the Swan river, then onto the lawn for a dress-up party.”

The Sum of Us

Yirra Yaakin & Perth Festival present a play exploring family dynamics, queerness & romance with an Australian First Nations cast which addresses contemporary representations of First Nations People.

  • Dates:Feb 25 - 28, Mar 4 - 7
  • Time(s):Wed – Sat 7.30pm, Sat 6 Mar 2pm Matinee, Sun 6pm

  • Type:Aboriginal Art & Events
  • Performing Arts:Theatre
  • Produced By:Yirra Yaakin
  • Event Venue:Subiaco Arts Centre

Description

The Sum of Us is a beautiful tale of a strong family bond, ageing, queerness and the dance we all do when searching for love. Written by David Stevens, The Sum of Us will be performed by an Australian First Nations cast in a 2.5 hour production spiced with Latin dancing and great music from the 1990s. In an industry where Indigenous people are constantly asked to relive their trauma instead of normalising good relationships, this play is about a beautiful father-son relationship and their search for love. This is the first time Yirra Yaakin has produced a play with a focus on queer identity. It will be presented as part of the need to display functional and dysfunctional families and represent First Nations people as contemporary, dynamic and evolutionary members of society.

How's a guy supposed to find Mr. Right when his father is always up in his business? That's the premise of this warm comedy that revolves around the comfortable relationship between widower Harry and his son Jeff. A beautiful tale of a strong family bond, ageing, queerness and the dance we all do when searching for love, this is Yirra Yaakin's first queer work. Performed by an Australian First Nations cast; it is a story that no culture is exempt from. Balancing humour and pathos, The Sum of Us remains as relevant today as it was 30 years ago.

Unit 20 Regurgitator Play Unit And More…At The Movies

Celebrate through cinema with Aussie techno marvel Regurgitator as they relive the birth of of their big hit, Unit

  • Dates:Mar 3
  • Time(s):7.45pm
  • Venue:Luna Outdoor

Details

  • Hosted By:Luna Outdoor
  • Ticket Price:$16 - $22
  • Music:Electronic
  • Other:Outdoor Movies
  • Event Venue:Luna Outdoor

Description

UNIT20 celebrated 20 years of UNIT. OCT 2017. The only performance Regurgitator did to deconstruct this concept. Co-produced with Trent Weekes, and performed at the Gold Coast Convention Centre for the EB GAMES 20th anniversary games conference. 

Screening for 1 night only at the Luna Outdoor on Wed 3rd March : Doors 6:45pm for a 7:45pm film start.

Unit is but a pixel in time. A speck in the Australian music cultural cosmos. In itself a chimerical reaction to a love of music past. Forged in a self-created Dirty Room studio in the Fortitude Valley over a few weeks in August 1997 after returning from an extensive US tour with Helmet & The Melvins… then set adrift in the molecular world by Warner Music on NOV 3 1997. First conveyed into the live stratosphere at a ski club in the northern climes of Darwin on a balmy Halloween eve… this self-effacing monster of a retrotech platter stirred the self-styled opening jeer of I like your old stuff better than your new stuff, tumbling all that chose to follow into the rapidly embraced new stuff of beeps, blips and all out pop-rockin' fun. Unit resolutely found its link in the musical DNA of the day and 20 years down the track this yellow dot still glows with all the intensity it rose that day to greet us with. The UNIT20 collaboration with EB Games strived for a unique multi-dimensional ocular moment, the only live revisitation that was emitted across the double decade point in time… and even more the gratification to have been joined in that celebration by musical compatriots Art vs Science along with 7 Bit Hero to help transmit the light and sound. Pong on indeed!

JahRoc Galleries invite you to the opening of “Solipsism”, an exhibition of new paintings by Lauren Wilhelm. Opening Celebration Saturday 27th 5-7pm Meet Lauren Wilhelm, and enjoy fine wine and live music by Graeme Dickinson. All welcome. “My new exhibition Solipsism reflects my time working in the year 2020 – a year which looks to herald the era of the ‘new normal’. As the outside world is increasingly unsure and truths seem in dispute, the idea of solipsism comes to mind – the theory that the self is the only thing that can be known and verified. My works reflect my preoccupation with the inner world and our frailty – humans and animals alike. It serves as a form of ‘vanitas’ painting for me – reminding oneself that life’s brevity can make problems seem smaller, simple connections more beautiful and time more precious.” Lauren Wilhelm 2021 Lauren Wilhelm lives in the Margaret River Region on a rural property where she keeps horses, and paints in her studio with her rescued Rainbow Lorikeet sitting on her shoulder, singing in Lauren’s ear to the music that is playing. Exhibition is showing until 19th March

Over the course of the Festival Pip's works with ebb and flow, appearing on the Festival's online platforms, public screens and sidewalks throughout the city. This ephemeral ode to the overlooked culminates in an intimate walking tour and guided meditation, refocusing the eye and mind on the finer details of things that wash up on the shores of out vision.
