Commissioned by PICA and presented with Performing Lines WA.
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.
