Pinjarra Murray Times - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
