As part of the Heritage Perth Weekend 2021, DADAA’s Access All Arts Program is providing Tactile Tours and Audio Description services for several events.

April 16 | 5pm – 6.30pm

Dirty Deeds Resurrected 

Presented by the City of Perth and Genrefonix

Hosted by Perth historical heavyweights, Moondyne Joe & Governor John Hampton, arch enemies back in Perth’s early days of the 1860’s. Somewhat of an ‘odd couple’, the pair will use quirky anecdotes, tales of mischief, song and crowd participation on the ‘Dirty Deeds’ Theatre Tour, to activate the veritable ‘beating heart’ of Perth, WA, that is Cathedral Square.

On this tour, you will discover; who the Governor was that took extreme pleasure in the pain of wayward early settlers, how was it that the housewives of Perth in the 1920’s were almost overcome by the scourge that the new wave of cinema presented and what was the cause of the riots outside the State Building? All this and more will be revealed in a unique, highly entertaining, theatrical tour of Cathedral Square like no other!

Suitable for ages 16+
When: Tactile Tour 5pm | Audio Description 5.45pm to 6.30pm
