On a bedrock of Indigenous culture, Perth Festival 2020 welcomes everyone to a glorious summer celebration of people and place. More than 250 events across theatre, music, dance, opera, film, visual arts and literature and ideas – many of them free – will dazzle audiences from near and far from 7 February to 1 March. 

 

Lovers of dance, physical theatre and circus have much to savour in 2020 as national and international companies perform side-by-side with local artists. Outdoors at the State Theatre Centre, audiences will get up close and personal with the master of rock ‘n’ roll performance, Hofesh Shechter, as STRUT Dance transforms the Courtyard into a mosh pit of super charged dance. In the Studio Underground, 50 dancers flood the stage in Stephanie Lake’s monumental dance work Colossus.

 

Under director Yaron Lifschitz, Circa’s renowned ensemble join 18 local performers from Co:3 Australia, Circus Maxima and CircusWA to push the limits of human possibility in the world-premiere Festival commission Leviathan at the Regal Theatre. International brilliance shines in Tao of Glass, left. Performerdirector Phelim McDermott, of the UK theatre group Improbable, teams up with composer Philip Glass and an ensemble of musicians and puppeteers for a gorgeous theatrical odyssey through Glass’s music. It was the hit of the 2019 Manchester International Festival.
