Ignorance was Bliss

May 22 - May 26

ignorance was bliss

Dive into the Nostalgic World of “Ignorance was Bliss” at the Historic Liberty Theatre
Step back in time with ‘Ignorance was Bliss’, a captivating 60-minute dance-theatre experience that transports audiences to a bygone era of innocence and euphoria. Originally premiered at FRINGE WORLD 2023, this site-specific rendition takes place within the enchanting walls of the Liberty Theatre, a nostalgic throwback to the 1950s.

Created by the dynamic collaboration of Enneagon Movement, led by Giorgia Schijf and Minni Karamfiles, ‘Ignorance was Bliss’ is a mesmerising fusion of dance, film, lighting, and music, culminating in a five-night spectacle in the heart of Perth’s CBD in May 2024. But the experience doesn’t stop there. Prior to each performance, indulge in free swing dance classes, open to the public and designed to get you in the groove. After the show, join us for engaging post-show Q+As, where we delve deeper into the themes and inspirations behind this enchanting production.

This show serves as a poignant reflection on a simpler time, where familial bonds flourished and the pace of life was gentler. Yet, amidst the sentimentality lies a whimsical spirit, threaded with humour and warmth. Join us on this journey of rediscovery, as we uncover the lessons of the past and their relevance in our modern world.

Don’t miss your chance to experience “Ignorance was Bliss” at the Liberty Theatre, where nostalgia meets contemporary creativity. Book your tickets now for an unforgettable evening of dance, laughter, and reflection.
