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.

Putting on an Act

Putting on an Act

Drug Aware Short Performance Festival From the wildly experimental to the outrageously funny; sometimes witty and sophisticated; at other times sombre or even silly, Putting on an Act provides a unique opportunity to see what WA’s independent performance makers are up to. The full gamut of original and experimental performance is served in bite-sized pieces, encompassing dance, spoken word performance, physical theatre, live or audio-visual art. With a different program of short performances every night, each restricted to 15 minutes duration and often accompanied by slide and video projection, this rapid-fire performance season has proven immensely popular since its inception in 1994.
