We’ve had a lot of 2016 season launches from all around town in the past couple of weeks, and boy is there some exciting stuff on the horizon for Perth!
And tomorrow the Fringe World 2016 and Blue Room Summer Nights programs go live, so here at Perth Arts Live, we’re all aflutter with the excitement that’s beginning to build!
But 2015 ain’t over yet, and there are a few things on to keep us going until the end of the year. Let’s take a look!
Hayman Theatre and The Blue Room Theatre
Runs 8 – 12 Dec
About the show:
CURTIN UNIVERSITY PERFORMANCE STUDIES
A play that explores love. Young love. Love in a hyper connected world. Love with a Capital L. Love in a century of infinite options. Love in a world with Tinder. Love in a place where a celebrity dog is more important than thousands of drowning strangers. Love in an age of knowing too much and understanding too little. In a Bony Embrace is a funny, beautifully dark, heightened play about clichés and hopelessness, break-ups and modern love.
This premiere production of In A Bony Embrace is part of STAGE ONE, an initiative of the Performance Studies course at Curtin University that annually offers a Western Australian playwright the opportunity to write and premiere a new play.
Featuring: Chelsea Gibson, Daisy Coyle, Beth Tremlett, Anna Lindstedt, Jessica Moyle, Sean Guastavino, Nathan Whitebrook, Alex Gerrans, Tristan McInnes and Kane Parker

The concert will finish with the 1812 Overture accompanied by a theatrical pyrotechnics display, which is always a highlight of this free outdoor concert. Save the date now and join WASO for a magical night under the stars.
