Round House


Dynamic soundscapes and film sequences will swirl across the Roundhouse courtyard, exploring the deep and pervasive influence of limestone on the architecture, history and psychology of Fremantle. The show's Welsh title, meaning 'freedom in rock', reflects the harsh reality of the convict experience. Long forgotten souls wrestled with 'cap-rock' till near death to construct the impressive landscape of Fremantle and ultimately win their freedom. Many are said to be trapped within the imposing structures that remain. Witness Fremantle arts/music collective Genrefonix deliver this pulsating live show within the confines of the Roundhouse, the first permanent building in the Swan River Colony.
