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 foyer is open today 10am–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Crash Course

Crash Course

Picking up the pieces after a life-changing event is never easy. Here at Crash Course you are in good hands. With over twenty-five years teaching experience, our instructors gently guide you through the process of rebuilding.

Life is a crash course. Places are limited.

Crash Course is a participatory theatre experience that takes the form of an immersive language class. You have endured an unspecified trauma and lost your language. Your teacher, Jakebo, is here to help you put the pieces back together. An unexpected twist leads to an unruly classroom experience where you must decide, fight or flight, sink or swim.

Created and performed by the champion of intimate theatre, James Berlyn (Tawdry Heartburn’s Manic Cures, Sydney Festival and Perth International Arts Festival).
