you’ve felt it too, right?

12–16 FEBRUARY 2023
618 Hay Street Mall, Perth

‘heartbeat.’ tells the real stories of those attempting to create a career in the arts long after everybody else has grown up.

blending theatre, spoken word, music and verbatim elements, this debut show from ‘perhaps, a theatre company.’ follows five west australian artists as they desperately try to find meaning in their role as a performer. ‘heartbeat.’ explores the power of art in a world that favours the monotonous, returning both the audience and the performers to the magic of childhood and the thing that connects us all: the all-consuming, undeniable desire to create.

you’ve felt it too, right?

about perhaps, a theatre company.

‘perhaps. a theatre company’, created by emmett aster, is a semi-professional theatre company blurring the lines that separate theatre from other art forms to tell human stories and explore the feelings that, perhaps, we’ve all felt.
