About this event

The captivating tale of a refugee's epic journey takes flight in this absurd, touching, and wonderful physical feat, skipping nimbly from high slapstick to pure poetry in motion. Shortlisted for the Theatre Award and nominated for the West Australian Arts Editor Award for Paradise Lost in 2017, Bare Witness returns to FRINGE WORLD with another physical tour de force. Combining Chaplin-esque finesse with an intricate, evocative soundscape, the myth of the dreamer who flies too close to the sun is reimagined as a modern tale of courage, hope, desperation and despair, brought to life with unexpected playfulness.
