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.

Our galleries are open today 12–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Bad Baby Jean

Bad Baby Jean

‘Round these parts, you don’t earn the name Bad Baby Jean, unless you’ve made a career out of being really, really bad.
Prison breaks, fisticuffs, a highway robbery, lonely deserts and wide-open roads…Bad Baby Jean takes all your favourite western cinematic moments and slices-and-dices them into a fast-paced theatrical adventure.
A cardboard western noir performed live to audiences in person and online simultaneously, The Last Great Hunt combines elements of animation, puppetry, live performance and technical wizardry in this high-octane story that pushes the boundaries of theatre.
Bad Baby Jean is a work-in-progress and a hopeful gesture towards new performance possibilities enabled by digital technology.

The Last Great Hunt is an internationally renowned collective of six theatre makers: Gita Bezard, Adriane Daff, Arielle Gray, Chris Isaacs, Jeffrey Jay Fowler and Tim Watts. They are creators, innovators and above else, explorers. With each new theatre experience, they hunt for new ideas and new ways of connecting with their expanding audiences across Australia and the world. They create high quality, rigorous, relevant and entertaining original work. Created in Perth, Western Australia, their work features an eclectic variety of forms, styles and experiences. They strive to give their audience an engaging, challenging and moving night out at the theatre.
COVID-19 Safety Policies
PICA is adhering to WA Government advice around how we ticket our performances.  From 24 October 2020, selected venues that predominantly hold seated events are exempt from the 2sqm rule and can operate at 60% capacity for seated performances. PICA is taking a conservative approach to implementing this new measure to provide a positive and safe experience for our audiences – we ask you to continue to observe 1.5m physical distancing where relevant and possible.
All other publicly accessible areas of PICA (foyers, galleries) remain subject to capacities set by the 1 person per 2sqm rule.
