Theatre: Floor Thirteen

25 Jun – 13 Jul @ The Blue Room Theatre ·
Presented by The Blue Room Theatre & Marshall Stay ·

How real are our memories? Have you ever been certain about something? So sure that you’d swear on your life  it happened the way you remembered it? Except you were wrong? One woman is stuck in an elevator, profoundly alone but haunted by memories clamouring for attention. She has plenty of time to reflect on her life…or to start questioning what’s real.

Race through a mind in turmoil and be prepared to question everything; this is Memento meets Chunky Move. Daring physical theatre and innovative technology collide with aesthetics that’ll stay in your mind for years to come. Nothing is safe.

In a bold experiment from some of Perth’s best up and coming talent, memories are blown apart and reconstructed to expose our inner demons, and mysteries far worse. Strap in for this thrilling ride with one woman and all the spooks her mind can conjure.

Theatre: 100 Reasons for War

27 – 29 June @ The Actors Hub, East Perth ·
Presented by The Actors’ Hub ·

A chaotic, mind-opening work that leads to numerous questions about the state of humanity – and our individual role in it – is the latest offering from The Actors’ Hub. Written by award-winning playwright Tom Holloway and directed by Ella Hetherington,  100 Reasons for War was originally commissioned to mark the 100th anniversary of Australia’s  involvement in World War I.

The play takes a tangential look at the reasons societies often find themselves in terrible and tragic conflicts. Funny, moving and provocative, 100 Reasons for War questions the multiple and complex reasons why war has become such a prominent feature in the history of humankind.

100 Reasons for War plays at 7pm June 27, 28 and 29. Tickets are $30, $25 concession – book at www.trybooking.com/BCXZH
