A Perth Festival Commission
Step inside the filming of a 1970s Aussie action-flick and watch as extraordinary stunt doubles cycle through take-after- take of high-octane flips, fights and more, putting their bodies on the line while the actors reap the glory.
Groundbreaking dance and theatre collective The Farm return to Perth with another genre-bending blockbuster. This time it’s a tongue-in-cheek dive into the absurd power dynamics of the film industry and the human cost of celebrity, a hilarious social satire that will gut punch you with moments of poignant beauty and leave you gasping for breath. In Stunt Double it’s the hardest working people who get paid the least and exploited the most. Sound familiar? That’s because some things never change.
We’re looking for volunteers to take part in the show. You’ll take on the role of an extra or a crew member on the film set for the night, making your debut on stage!
Sign up today and catch all the action.
