Education

WELCOME FROM BEN PARKIN, EDUCATION OFFICER

We are delighted to offer a fantastic selection of accessible artistic experiences suitable for students with the majority of tickets priced at only $15.50 each (under 18).

Theatre lovers will be captivated by Donka: A Letter to Chekhov, which explores the world of Chekhov through physical theatre involving clowns, jugglers and acrobats. World class Australian theatre is also on offer and I highly recommend Boundary Street set in a Brisbane jazz club during WWII and My Bicycle Loves You which utilises 100 year old Australian silent film footage in tandem with frenetic stage performances to take you to a world of vaudeville and cabaret.

Music students will be delighted with JS Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos and The CreationThe Manganiyar Seduction, showcasing traditional Indian music displayed in a very non traditional fashion or the genre busting Steve Reich's 2x5 combining rock and chamber instruments are also sure to appeal. For dance aficionados, the contempory piece Human Interest Story will impress.

We are pleased to be offering for the first time an exclusive opportunity for school groups to attend five Lotterywest Festival Films. Ideal for language students, a Chinese (Mandarin) language and two French and Italian language films have been specially selected for your viewing pleasure.

Perth Writers Festival Schools Day offers students the chance to engage with a range of international and Australian authors. For those with a passion for visual arts, Cloud City an installation piece taking over Langley Park will astonish whilst Dialogues with Landscape at UWA will provide a feast for the eyes and imagination.

This is just a taste of what's available and I invite you to explore the program in detail. Please do not hesitate to contact me on (08) 6488 8636 or via email schools@perthfestival.com.au should you need any assistance or information. 

I look forward to welcoming you and your students to 2011 Perth Festival!
