At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

We are closed today. Our exhibitions are always free.

歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong)

歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong)
WORLD PREMIERE | Presented by PICA and Performing Lines WA
Through your eyes, I see myself

Come on a contemplative journey through the streets, suburbs and open spaces of Taipei and Perth.
Devised by an extraordinary interdisciplinary team, each performance of 歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong) fuses dance, music, sound and video projections live on stage.
The result of a 4-year intercultural exchange, this moving new work by Steamworks Arts asks how our understanding of self and home are shaped by our experiences with others.
歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong) is an invitation to reflect on moments of isolation, connection and finding your way.
