This major exhibition explores the abundant beauty of the botanical world and the threats that assail it.

Trying to Find Comfort in an Uncomfortable Chair

By Agatha Gothe – Snape

Sat 27 Jul – 6 Oct, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art | Free

Untitled2

Trying to Find Comfort in an Uncomfortable Chair is a celebration of hidden stories. Artist Agatha Gothe-Snape has followed the thread of histories from work in the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art at the University of Western Australia and has gained a unique and vital insight into Australia’s only public collection of women’s art.


Termite Economies (Phase One)

By Nicholas Mangan

27 July – 6 Oct, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art | Free

Untitled

As a starting point for this exhibition, Nicholas Mangan looks at historical research undertaken by the CSIRO into the activity of termites in the hope that the behaviour of these industrious insects would assist with the identification of gold deposits and lead to increased efficiency in gold exploration.

Mangan combines footage he filmed on location in WA, alongside archival video and table-mounted sculptures – elaborate 3D prints of re-imagined internal workings of termite mounds. Using a 3D printer, plaster and soil, Mangan has created models that hybridise mining infrastructure with termite architecture to form speculative termite mining infrastructures.

LOVE, POLITICS AND OTHER THINGS YOU SHOULDN’T TALK ABOUT AT DINNER

WA PREMIERE

Prepare to be enthralled by a razor sharp romantic comedy that blends Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner with Meet the Fockers.

At the centre is Charlotte Gibson, a lawyer with a brilliant career ahead of her. As her father Ray says, she could be the next female First Nations Waleed Aly. But she has other ideas. First of all, it’s Christmas. Second of all, she’s in love.

Black is the New White sold out its world premiere at Sydney Theatre Company in 2017. Now this laugh-out loud smash hit comes to Perth bigger, better and blacker than ever!

 Outward Happenings

 

The Book of Mormon

September 5 – 21, Crown Theatre Perth

mormon

The New York Times calls it “the best musical of this century.” The Washington Post says, “It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.” And Entertainment Weekly says, “Grade A: the funniest musical of all time.” It’s The Book of Mormon, the nine-time Tony Award®-winning Best Musical.

This outrageous musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent on a mission to a place that’s about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. Now with sold out productions in London, on Broadway, North America, Melbourne and Sydney, The Book of Mormon has truly become an international sensation.

Giselle

Presented by the West Australian Ballet

September 13 – 28, His Majesty’s Theatre

Giselle-Layerslider

A 178-year-old tale of impossible love, vengeful ghosts and the ultimate forgiveness. With coveted virtuoso roles and an iconic ‘white ballet act’, this transcendent Romantic-era ballet has stood the test of time – maybe because first love and heartbreak resonates with us all.

Peasant girl Giselle, beautiful and innocent, falls deeply for Albrecht, a prince in disguise. When she discovers he is engaged to another, her grief and shock at his deception sends her mad. She dies of a broken heart and her spirit joins the ‘Wilis’ – ghosts of women betrayed.

The stunning classical costumes and atmospheric sets will spirit you away to an idyllic time and place, while West Australian Symphony Orchestra bring every emotion to life as they masterfully present Adolphe Adam’s score.
