Perth International Arts Festival 2017 (PIAF 2017) is an event that will commence on February 10 2017 and continue until March 5. It will be held at the Kings Park in Perth.
The park is among the largest inner-city parks of the world that will be transformed into a lighted high-tech narrator for the event. Over 700 artists will perform at the occasion comprising 180 events. The next year will be the 65th year of the festival in Australia. The event will have 11 Aussie exclusives for the attendees along with five world premieres as well as a set of artistic experiences to enjoy.
PIAF 2017 will also feature a play based on an acclaimed US election 2016 instance that is being scripted in time. There will also be a Museum of Water for the local people to cherish. The preparations have shown how effectively the organizers are utilizing the summer outdoor settings. Both Elizabeth Quay and Kings Park will be filled with lights all over.
According to reports, around $17 million have been sanctioned to the event organizers. PIAF 2017 will be themed on reconciliation, migration, empathy and accessibility. It is the second time when artistic ace Wendy Martin will be hosting an event. Prior to this, she organized Home in 2015. She called Perth International Arts Festival 2017 as the “most wonderful adventure around the world.”
“We will take a head-trip deep into the Amazon, experience Vietnamese village life through astonishing circus feats and enter the ritual world of South African song and dance,” the ABC quoted her as saying. “We start with a celebration over the opening weekend in Kings Park with Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak, an amazing outdoor spectacular exploring the incredible biodiversity of the South West of Western Australia.”
The event will act as a common platform for scientists, artists, botanists and also a major population from the Noongar Indigenous community.
