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.

WORLD PREMIERE

Dip into the darkly-comic dream state that is UNHEIMLICH – a house-cat will be your guide.
UNHEIMLICH, meaning un-homely/uncanny, is a space where the familiar can quickly become strange or frightening.
Join our happy couple on this journey where dreams and memories merge into reality and our shadow selves come out to play. Child-like games take on a deeper significance, jokes are wielded as weapons, and masks slip to reveal things that were intended to remain out of sight.
Conjuring fantastical imagery from the recesses of the human mind, UNHEIMLICH is a thrilling new performance work by director and The Last Great Hunt alum Katt Osborne and multidisciplinary artist Tarryn Gill. Drawing inspiration from her acclaimed Guardians series of soft sculptures, Gill has created life-sized, hand-sewn masks to be animated by an exciting team of Perth’s most-established performing artists.
UNHEIMLICH is an unmissable theatrical collaboration of visual arts, and performance.
