Perth Festival Presents
Literature Weekend in the City

Rebecca Giggs writes about science with the ease of a poet. 

Fathoms is not just a book about whales and the oceans, it is a book about humanity and our capacity to hurt even the things we claim to love. Rebecca’s work on jelly fish swarms, sea turtles and heatwaves has appeared in the Griffiths Review, New Yorker, Granta and the New York Times Magazine. Join one of the country’s most well-respected nature and science writers in a special visual presentation that takes us to the depths of the sea.

Please note:
  • Latecomers will not be admitted until a suitable break during the performance.
  • Mobile telephones and electronic devices are to be turned off during the performance.
  • Cameras, video cameras and tape recorders will not be permitted without the consent of the promoter.
  • For selected events in Perth Festival’s Literature & Ideas program, Perth Festival is trialling a new approach to ticketing. Simply pay what you can. We’ll let you know a suggested price for these events online, but you can choose to pay any amount you’d like – from $0. Any amount you pay above the suggested ticket price will be used to ensure that other people are able to attend Festival events where cost is normally a barrier.
  • Please note that transaction fees will apply regardless of the ticket price you choose – see below for more information on applicable transaction fees.
  • Pay What You Can - Recommended price $19.00 per ticket.
