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

Artist Floor Talk with Agatha Gothe – Snape | Sat 27 Jul – 6 Oct | 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) | Nicholas Mangan | 27 July – 6 Oct | 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.

Black Swan Theatre

Medea | 
by Kate Mulvany and Anne-Louise Sarks. Original concept by Anne-Louise Sarks after Euripides

INNOCENCE. NAIVETY. GAME PLAYING AND LOVE.

This new adaptation of Medea, co-written by WA’s own Kate Mulvany, puts one of history’s most notorious family breakdowns under the microscope.

Locked in their bedroom, two brothers play games to pass the time, as siblings do. Off-stage, their parents are having a very famous showdown. At an inevitable moment, the children will be drawn away from their games and into their parents’ bitter argument. From there, they will enter mythology as the most tragic siblings of all time.

The Blue Room Theatre

The Apparatus

Presented by Humphrey Bower

13 – 31 Aug | 7pm / 8:30pm | $20 – $30 inc. booking fee

The-Apparatus-03

Three stories by master of the macabre Franz Kafka explore the twists and turns of legal limbo, paranoia and offshore detention torture.

‘Before the Law’ is a haunting allegory about a man waiting outside a door; ‘The Burrow; is a black comedy about a creature obsessed with holes and tunnels; and ‘In the Penal Colony’ is a perverse demonstration by an insane officer of a torture device on an island prison.

Kafku wrote: ‘a book must be the axe for thee frozen sea within us.’

His nightmarish vision has never been more timely.

This visceral new work by one of Perth’s leading devisor-performers (WISH, SKIN) and the creative team who brought you HIRO will make you feel the absurdity and horror of what lies on our doorstep.
