FEARLESS START TO ARTS SUMMIT
CIRCUS SURE TO ENTERTAIN AUDIENCES
A WORLD class team of circus theatre artists will join local emerging artists to create an epic circus show to open the WA Regional Arts Summit 2017, in a firsttime co-production with Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.
Fearless by Maxima combines circus, theatre, shadow puppetry and clowning.
Sailing across the seas with a family of foxes sharing their darkest secrets and scariest moment, audiences watch their struggle to stay afloat, witness heartracing moments of panic and fear, and will be relieved as they step safely on to shore ready to face a new future together.
Fearless speaks evocatively to powerful, important and timely issues around the need for us as a community to fear less and is an action packed, exciting and magical show for the whole family, created with leading circus and theatre artists who have returned to their roots in WA and Mandurah from Ireland, London, Melbourne and Perth.
Maxima is Australia’s newest professional circus company, led by artistic director Sally Richardson.
The show is open to the public and tickets can be purchased from the centre box office.
Delegates will also enjoy a full program of indigenous culture and arts events and special activities.
Sponsored by Peel Development Commission, the program includes a performance of Bindjareb Pinjarra, the highly acclaimed theatre piece about the Pinjarra Massacre, off-site visits to significant venues including the massacre site, Murray Districts Aboriginal Cultural Centre and a bush tucker tea.
The public can enjoy a free night of community activities at the Kaya, Party in the Square, on October 12 from 6.30pm to 9.30pm with music, dancing, performance, food trucks, short films, the Hydrodome Projection art installation and a host of other activities. Circus will open the WA Regional Arts Summit this week.
