Each year as part of Fringe World, PICA present an unforgettable visual feast for the senses. This January, the celebrated institute will honour the immersive and the interactive in their two experimental WA premiers, Polar Force and The Talk.

 

Polar Force

Witness the formidable Speak Percussion company’s return to Perth in this hyper-realistic sound adventure to the Antarctic. Elements of sound, wind and light will unveil a multi-sensorial world, exploring notions of human fragility and isolation to question our relationship to the natural world.

Straight from a sold out world premiere season at Arts Centre Melbourne, Speak’s “virtuosic, adventurous” (New York Times) sound is set to provide Perth’s ‘coolest’ art experience this summer.

Venue: PICA Central Gallery, Dates: January 20th – 24th 

The Talk

Join Melbourne-based artist Mish Grigor for a terribly undomesticated evening with a hilariously live twist on the family dinner. Inspired by a period of research with Grigor’s own family members’ sex lives, audiences are invited to step in as she and her family re-enact real conversations about the taboos of sex, sexuality and love.

Described by The Guardian (UK) as “funny, toe-curlingly frank, and immensely insightful”, ‘The Talk’ is participatory theatre at its most explicit, unapologetic and best. 

Venue: PICA Performance Space, Dates: January 18th – 19th & 21st – 25th
