A Perth Festival co-commission and world premiere


In assocoation with TURA New Music

Leave your comfort zone and enter a mysterious world where you wander with the spirits of Perth’s colourful past. Discover forgotten secrets in the dusty shadows of one of our city’s most intriguing and significant heritage sites – Sunset down by the iconic Swan River. 

From the renowned UK director-choreographer Maxine Doyle (co-director of Punchdrunk’s The Drowned Man, Sleep No More) comes a visceral dance-theatre performance that is epic in reach but intimate in experience. Inspired by the riverside precinct’s rich and unique history and the bushland that surrounds it, a stunning team of Australian creatives, including the indomitable Racheal Dease, transform the former Sunset Old Men’s Home into a waiting room between worlds, where classical myth collides with WA stories and local heroes can waltz with gods.
