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.

Help Valentine as she searches for her heart.
Valentine is a clown and her best friend is her heart. She loves to spend time with her Grandpa, but Grandpa’s heart is running out of time, and there is nothing Valentine can do about it. Valentine is determined to be strong, not to fall apart, but in doing so she loses her heart. With a big empty world ahead of her, the audience helps Valentine on a journey to search for her heart, as she learns to embrace her emotions – even the painful ones.
Like a story book that comes to life before your eyes, Valentine combines shadow puppetry, animation and physical theatre to create a visually spectacular show. Designed for families and children, Valentine is an honest, playful and interactive show about what it means to love and lose somebody.
Honest, intimate and every bit heartwarming” – Rotunda Media
