Perth Festival - Witness Stand

Tuesday 16th February 2021 to Sunday 14th March 2021

Friday 5 to Sunday 28 February 2021 - John Tonkin Reserve, East Fremantle

Perth Festival followed a directive from the WA Government and as a result Witness Stand was postponed and rescheduled:  19 February to 14 March.


A Perth Festival Commission - Witness Stand is an unlikely place to listen.

Excerpt from Perth Festival "Across a city, in water bodies, and reserves, and forgotten sites, Witness Stand is an invitation to gather and spend learning time together. On a series of bespoke seating tiers extending from Wadjemup (Rottnest Island) to Walyalup (Fremantle) and through to the Guildford area, audiences will experience a series of specially commissioned sound works paying homage to the ancient stories of Whadjuk country and acknowledging the interruptions to this place caused by colonisation. This new commission invites audiences to consider the Derbal Yerrigan as a source of life."

To listen anew and to witness as one.
