Perth International Arts Festival 2015
The Perth International Arts Festival 2015 (13 Feb - 7 Mar) opens in an epic spectacle of wonder with Royal de Luxe’s The Incredible and Phenomenal Journey of the Giants to the Streets of Perth
, the biggest arts event Western Australia has ever seen.
For three days over the opening weekend, the French masters of theatrical magic let loose a modern-day fable that will transform Perth forever, as 11-metre tall giants take inspiration from uniquely Western Australian stories and tour the city, commemorating the Anzac centenary.
Perth International Arts Festival is the longest-running annual multi-arts celebration in the Southern Hemisphere and the jewel in the crown of Western Australia’s cultural life.
The programme includes performing arts (opera & dance, theatre & circus, music), visual arts, film and the well-regarded Perth Writers Festival
Daring and unforgettable, diverse and enriching, innovative and profound – the 2015 Perth International Arts Festival program delivers a cultural feast for arts lovers of all ages and persuasions, living up to the Festival’s worldwide reputation for excellence. In a quintessentially Western Australian experience, over 1000 of the world’s great artists transform and disrupt Perth this summer as the 63rd Festival spills across unique venues and glorious, outdoor spaces. The $22.4 million Festival is expected to draw more than one million people to the streets to experience the greatest collection of international artistic experiences Perth has ever known.
