22 October – 2 November 2014
Fremantle Arts Centre, WA

Now in its third year, Proximity Festival remains the only one-on-one performance platform of it’s kind in Australia. Nine days of experimental micro-performances, masterclasses, discussions and celebrations.

Breathe air from different ages on Earth, cut loose in a 60 second twerk, climb rooftops in search of love, sit behind the wheel with a learner driver and discover what memory tastes like.

Proximity Festival 2013 brings together artists from Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States working across theatre, dance, live-art and visual art to create twelve personalised experiences inviting you to reconsider what performance can be.
