Presented by Ochre Contemporary Dance Company

Artistic Director Mark Howett is bringing his dynamic Berlin production of Good Little Soldier home to Perth. Good Little Soldier is robust dance theatre, physically breathtaking, emotionally engaging and presented by world class performers.

“I’ve read many articles about PTSD, but never thought about it as much as I did after that performance.” - New York Times, 21 June 2013

It explores how PTSD infects the families of those afflicted. Set in an Australian suburban home the work portrays a returned soldier struggling to return to normal family life, and coping with the ghost’s he brought back from war.

Water drips, milk burns, a home becomes a battlefield. Daily life and trauma merge into part hallucination, part violent reality, part trench humour. The conflict comes home and the hypervigilance of soldiers, life-saving in war, shatters nerves in civilian life.

Age Restrictions: Suitable 15+
Warnings: Haze, Coarse language, strobe lighting, PTSD trigger warning
