Experience art in a different light at the 2018 Perth Festival from 8 February - 3 March. Perth Festival is set to deliver nine world premieres and seven Australian exclusives as part of its recently launched program
Perth Festival curates and presents an annual arts festival, creating new work and stimulating discourse about Western Australia and our place in a complex and political world. The Festival's ambition is to lift audience expectations and opportunities for Western Australian arts practice, contributing to a vibrant and resilient culture.
Some of the highlights include The Magic Flute, by acclaimed director Barrie Kosky and presented with the West Australian Opera and West Australian Symphony Orchestra; a Vietnamese bamboo circus show, Lang Toi – and stunning physical theatre piece The Great Tamer by Greek Director Dimitirs Papaioannou. A line-up of local and international artists such as The Preatures, Cat Power and The Internet will perform at the Chevron Gardens pop-up outdoor venue at Elizabeth Quay, while the popular Boorna Waaginy: The Trees Speak immersive exhibition will return to light up Perth’s iconic Kings Park with a nocturnal walk-through experience over the four-night opening weekend.
