From The Rubble

From The Rubble

Presented by Perth Theatre Company in association with PICA

WORLD PREMIERE

PAPER. PROJECTION. PEOPLE.

Exploding the boundaries of theatre, From the Rubble is a unique multi-artform piece inspired by Perth’s own Walkley Award winning journalist Sophie McNeill.

Director Melissa Cantwell uses the evocative images embedded in Sophie’s work to offer a glimpse into the lives of civilians in conflict zones. Exploring themes of displacement, transformation and hope, From the Rubble tells compelling personal stories that find joy in the resilience and ingenuity of women the world over.

Witness PICA’s Performance Space transformed into an immersive world, created by visual artist Fleur Elise Noble and a team of Perth innovators, incorporating drawing, animation, film, sculpture, live performance and puppetry.
