Take a pathway across Northbridge with a set of headphones and an open mind in this opera for one.

Seeking basic needs and other tales of excess
The streets are your stage. Listen in as an original soundscape unfolds with stories of migration and patterns of human behaviour.

Hear world-wide tales of struggle, joy and hope as the city comes alive in this immersive sonic storytelling experience. Created by Perth-based Renée Newman, and made in collaboration with sound designer Ben Collins, Seeking basic needs and other tales of excess is a new Western Australian work and a world premiere exploring the form of the audio tour.

Borrowing from Francis Alÿs’s notion that walking is “with the speed culture of our time – a kind of resistance…a very immediate method for unfolding stories”, it strips back what we need – to live and love – by asking you to slow down. See the world as a moving picture, the streets your stage and the people your actors.

A meditation on hope, this mindful solo encounter in public space embraces how we are always moving, shifting, changing.
