The Nature of Why – Perth Festival

Concert or Performance

21 Feb 2019 to 23 Feb 2019

Feel the transformative power of music and dance in an epic performance bursting with passion and joyous intensity.

Taking inspiration from the unconventional curiosity of Nobel prize-winning physicist, Richard Feynman, and his search for meaning in the world around us, The Nature of Why is an intimately powerful and evocative work.

Led by renowned conductor Charles Hazelwood, members of the world’s only large-scale ensemble for professional disabled musicians, the British Para-orchestra, are joined by string players from Perth Symphony Orchestra to perform a cinematic live-score by Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory. The stage becomes a site of discovery as four dancers move to the music in a choreography by Australian artist and disability advocate Caroline Bowditch.

Merging contemporary dance and live orchestral music The Nature of Why erases the divide between musicians, dancers and audience, immersing you in an uplifting up-close-and-personal theatrical experience.

This event is part of Perth Festival, one of Western Australia’s premier cultural events.
