Presented at the Perth International Arts Festival February 13th, 2016
Featuring more than 500 performers live on stage, Home is a theatrical spectacular set against a 60-metre-long cinematic backdrop, displaying five three-storey houses. Presented across Langley Park,Home is like nothing you’ve seen before.
As the Swan River carves a winding path from the Indian Ocean through Fremantle to Mount Eliza and from Perth to the Hills, Home celebrates 40,000 years of culture, shines a light on the fragile beauty of Western Australia’s landscape and charts an epic journey of arrival, foundation, boom time and resilience.
A stellar line-up, including The Drones, The Triffids, The Panics, Pigram Brothers and The Waifs, join Ernie Dingo, John Butler Trio, Tim Minchin, Shaun Tan and Tim Winton, as well as hundreds of musicians and artists, to guide you on this musical and visual journey from the suburbs to the sea and from our backyards to the bush.
This is Western Australia, live on stage for one night only.
