Slipping through time and genres, York unveils the pasts we invent and the pasts we fail to acknowledge. Inspired by 200 years of real accounts, this daring new work sheds light on how our stories are told – and who tells them. Neighbour, I’ve been having trouble sleeping. Perhaps it’s that we haven’t been here very long but… do you hear it? There’s a pulse. A voice. Underneath and around. I’ve stripped back the wall paper and lifted the carpet. I’ve pulled up the floorboards and stand with a sledgehammer above the foundations. The tension is climbing up the walls and through the beams. There’s something unsettled here. Something needing to be heard.

Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes

  • Event Venue:WA Museum Boola Bardip


From the sporting triumphs of the original Olympians to the conquests of Alexander the Great and the epic tales of Homer, Greek history is filled with the glorious deeds of athletes, warriors and heroes. The Ancient Greeks were renowned for their competitive spirit. It famously flourished in sporting and battle arenas but also in the performing arts, with contests in music, drama, sculpture and painting. Underpinning the quest for glory and honour was an emphasis on excellence. Physical training sculpted the body that would achieve sporting or military victory. Education, philosophy, science and the visual arts were equally important, shaping and sharpening the mind.

WATCH AT HOME EVENT ONLINE NOW UNTIL SUN 15 AUG, 11pm (AWST) Presented by Co3 Contemporary Dance Australia A Perth Festival Commission Archives of Humanity from Co3 Contemporary Dance Australia is a living and emotive meditation on human existence. A celebration of community, exploring the ways individuals respond and care for each other in a crisis. The work features a remarkable set – a flock of birds, created by and carrying the stories of members of the Western Australian community in isolation. The birds united, soar as a collective symbol of endurance and hope. The sweeping narratives in the performance embrace the memories, desires, and aspirations of an affected community. Eden Mulholland's stunning score opens the performance, echoing the movements of an ensemble of dancers in a gradual and persistent climbing arc of cyclical patterns. Some of the art world’s most striking scenes are reimagined in humanity’s tumultuous bid to transcend. To rise, to fall, but to always try to rise again – together.

Hermia and Lysander are besotted with one another, while Helena adores Demetrius. The only snag is that Demetrius loves Hermia - and he's got Hermia's father on his side. So nobody is happy. (Shakespeare wasn't kidding when he said the course of true love never did run smooth.) Determined to be together, Hermia and Lysander meet in a moonlit forest, with plans to elope. Following hot on their heels is Demetrius, who in turn is pursued by a lovelorn Helena. But the young lovers are not alone in the forest. Nick Bottom and his hapless bunch of tradies have gathered to rehearse a play to be performed at the royal wedding. And, hidden from human eyes, a mischievous sprinkling of fairies are also in the forest that night.
