Worn Art Revamped | Broome
Worn Art – Back by Popular Demand – Two nights only – 2 & 3 November 2018.
Theatre Kimberley proudly presents its latest original extravaganza of multicultural costumes, drama, dance, music and circus.
Worn Art Revamped: X-Girl Red and the Tragic Pearl is the final instalment of the Bella Trilogy, written and directed by award winning designer and Broome local, Lesley Marsh.
The show, to be hosted at Jimmy Chi Hall, Broome Civic Centre, will feature a stunning collection of wearable art-works created by local Kimberley designers and award winning entrants from Perth and overseas.
Inspired by William Charnley’s The Tragic Pearl, Marsh’s original narrative follows the story of three generations of Broome women interlaced with the tale of one rare and ill-fated pearl. The trilogy stretches from Broome’s pearling heyday in the 1890’s to the 1960’s and focuses on Broome’s unique multi-cultural past.
X-Girl Red and the Tragic Pearl will showcase the incredible diversity of talent that our region is renowned for. Partners for the multi-arts project include: the Bidyadanga Women’s Centre and the Bidyadanga Community; Studio 34 and the Broome Performing Arts Co-Op; WASAMBA, Theatre Kimberley’s Act-Belong-Commit Sandfly Circus, the Broome Chinese Community, and more.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. Theatre Kimberley would also like to thank Country Arts WA and the Shire of Broome for sponsoring this event. Bidyadanga Community involvement is made possible by Theatre Kimberley’s Act-Belong-Commit Dragonfly Outreach Program.
