Perth International Arts Festival presents


Sheer spectacle.


, 7.30pm

Heath Ledger Theatre, State Theatre Centre of WA

Tickets $16

  • Dance


Entrapped by 5,000 cords that create a forest of brilliantly lit strings, a warrior-woman conquers her environment and floats, like a black angel, in a spectacular cage. She can only leave by vanishing completely. In time to the beat of her heart she slowly moves through the strings like a puppet, striving towards freedom in a sequence of movements that defy the laws of gravity.

This is Plexus, a stunning visual feast that brings together impressive artistry, dance and visual arts. 

Aurélien Bory is renowned for making breathtaking visual theatre at the intersection between dance, puppetry and visual art. The sensory spectacular Plexus is his portrait of a remarkable dancer, Japan’s Kaori Ito.
