Description

'Great business must be wrought ‘ere … boodjar baal waaliny.'

Hecate, queen of the witches, is usually omitted from productions of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Here, she is at the heart of everything, watching as Macbeth strives toward power at any cost, all the while knowing that order must be restored; that Country always trumps human ambition and greed.

In 1833 colonist Robert Menli Lyon wrote in reference to Noongar people that ‘the whole of each tribe are bards’. This world premiere event puts those words to the test. Having spent years studying and reclaiming their endangered Noongar language, a star ensemble use this audacious adaptation as a springboard to showcase its poetic and expressive qualities.

Join us for Australia's first large-scale Shakespeare production entirely in Noongar language, the original language of the south west of Western Australia, as conceived by Kyle J Morrison. Adapted and directed by Kylie Bracknell [Kaarljilba Kaardn]. 

A post-show Q&A will take place after the show on Feb 11 and a schools performance will take place on Feb 12.

Hecate is presented by Yirra Yaakin Theatry Company, Bell Shakespeare and Perth Festival.

Untitled (Uura)

Presenting Perth based Martu artist Curtis Taylor's first solo exhibition which brings together multiple streams of his practice including sculpture, installation and film.

  • Dates:Oct 18 - Jan 5
  • Time(s):Tues – Sun 10am – 5pm; Oct 18 6.30pm-8.30pm

  • Produced By:PICA: Perth Institute of Contemporary Art
  • Event Venue:PICA
  • Visual Arts:Other Visual Arts,Sculpture

Description

Untitled (Uura) presents work made over a two-year period of exploration as he worked with new materials and processes of making, finding new forms through which to tell stories and record language. This period of practice marks a departure from his first medium of film and presents a series of carved sculptures and site-specific installations and paintings. Untitled (Uura) explores the artists self and how language, knowledge and persistent memories dwell within and re-surface across generations.

Producing stories in Martu Wangka dialect for his community and younger generations is fundamental to Taylor’s practice. He has a collective approach to filmmaking often working with collaborators and finding opportunities for younger generations and community members to build skills and discover their own practices and methods of storytelling. His films have been shown at The National 2019: New Australian Art at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney alongside collaborator Ishmael Marika, and The Sydney Film Festival 2019 with film making partner Nathan Mewett.

Curtis Taylor asserts narratives of cultural and personal identity, creating immersive spaces occupied by language and ritual that explore the edges of life and death.

Description

Kicking off Thursday October 31 and spanning from the purpose built Scarborough Square down to the crisp white sands of the Amphitheatre, each week the beachfront will once again ignite into a celebration of all that makes this location truly special - mesmerising sunsets, crystal blue ocean, crisp white sands, a foodies’ oasis, thirst quenching bevies, live music, creative artists and curated pop up stores- while encouraging locals, families and visitors to continue rediscovering Scarborough.

Last year’s season saw record crowds of locals and visitors descend on Scarborough each week to spend summer nights on Scarborough Beach with their toes in the sand as they wander through a global market of culinary delights and sensory surprises.

This year promises to be filled with even more mouthwatering food, stunning retail, chilled tunes, arts and engaging entertainment, while we also launch a WAR ON WASTE!

Our WAR ON WASTE aims to;
• reduce waste at the markets;
• introduce reusable containers;
• recycle organic & compostable waste; and
• minimise disposal into landfill

The main sources of waste at the markets are food and plastic plates, cutlery and bottles. Therefore, to ensure we deliver on our vision for a greener market the below strategies are being introduced;

• Patron’s encouraged to BYO plates, cutlery, cups
• Market Eat Kits – we are selling reusable eating kits for patrons including plates and utensils.
• Waste Stations around the markets, at which visitors place waste on a table and our War on Waste Warriors sort through it and dispose of it in the correct bin – reducing contamination and incorrect bin usage.

Description

Surrealism was a worldwide phenomenon when Heathcote opened in 1929 and I’ve always been interested in the connection between Surrealism and concepts of madness. When asked to make new work about the Heathcote Mental Health Reception Centre I took the opportunity to explore some of the strategies used by the Surrealists: collective ventures, poetry and the use of found objects in artworks.

As I read stories from past staff and patients, and listened to Oral Histories that have been collected - I allowed the ones that resonated to come forward. These stories had something of the surreal about them, a startling relationship with a material (feathers, hair, bone), the erotic, or the unconscious. They suddenly made me identify with the patient or the staff member- to be in their body, to inhabit madness, and to work in a place that both contained and maintained madness.

With thanks to Kaylene Poon, the City of Melville History Centre staff and the many participants who contributed to this project.

Description

Chained in a secret dungeon, an innocent man awaits certain death. But in Beethoven’s ode to love, risk and triumph, there is one prison guard who holds the key to his fate. Fidelio is the uplifting tale of Leonore, a heroic woman who creates a daring plan to free her husband from wrongful imprisonment, and the tyranny that put him there.

Under the direction of Asher Fisch, Beethoven’s score blazes with soul-stirring emotion in this concert production of a work rarely performed in Perth. German soprano Christiane Libor delivers a mighty, no-holds-barred performance as Leonore, leading one of the finest casts ever assembled in Australia.

Celebrating the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth, Fidelio is presented as a hallmark work of the 2020 Perth Festival. Featuring the full force of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the West Australian Opera Chorus and WASO Chorus with narrator Eryn Jean Norvill, this once in a generation retelling of one of the most inspiring stories ever set to music is completely unmissable.
