A capacity crowd of Perth’s most preeminent culture vultures filled the Perth Concert Hall last night, Thursday, November 7, for the launch of the 2014 Perth International Arts Festival program. Artistic director Jonathan Holloway kept the patter snappy and the excitement levels high as he guided the audience through a quick rundown of what is, by anyone’s standards, an truly impressive season of theatre, music, dance, visual arts, film and more.
Sacrilege, an art installation by Turner Prize recipient Jeremy Deller, which consists of a life-size Stonehenge bouncy castle.
Not By Bread Alone, a stage performance by Israel’s Nalaga’at Deaf-Blind Theatre Ensemble.
Radio And Juliet, a ballet which sees Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy set to the music of Radiohead.
A stellar film program which includes Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, the survival drama All Is Lost, the critically lauded 12 Years A Slave and the warm indie comedy In A World…
A brilliant contemporary music lineup at the Chevron Festival Gardens, including the National, Julia Holter, The Basics, Husky and Public Enemy.
The Perth International Arts Festival runs from February 7 to March 1, with the film stream running from November 25 – April 13. For info and tickets, head to the official site.
