The award-winning theatrical piece, presented by Little y Theatre Company and theMOXYcollective, co-directed by Mark Storen and Renee Newman-Storen, has been re-imagined to suit the market venue.

‘Artists, companies and festivals all over the world are embracing performance events outside the traditional ” where the locals become the actors and the streets the stage. Public Space asks for something similar,’ Storen said.

Mayor Troy Pickard said Central Walk had recently been upgraded with the installation of LED lighting.

‘The LED lights reduce energy consumption, offer extra security and safety and are aesthetically pleasing,’ he said.

The markets will be held from 6pm to 9pm for five Fridays between November 22 and December 20 and will offer a range of WA arts, crafts, food, fashion, homewares and children’s toys.

They will also feature musical entertainment and free children’s activities such as face painting, gingerbread decorating, balloon twisting and a visit from Santa on December 20.

Public Space will be performed at 7pm. Tickets $25 from www.trybooking.com/dlpa.
