Perth International Arts Festival 2015

royaldeluxeperth 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 (February 19-22). Mariko-Mori-HERO 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.
