Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA presents
I write to you from Whadjuk Boodjar, where at Black Swan, we work, create and perform. We pay our respects to Nyoongar Elders past and present.
This last year has offered many challenges, but has also afforded us time to reflect. In this reflection it has become clear that what we do as a company is gather. We gather ideas, we gather conversations, and we gather people.
To feel the pulse of an audience gripped by new Australian drama, to hear them laugh in unison at the perfectly paced comedic gesture, to marvel alongside them at a reinterpreted classic and more is a wonderful honour.
It’s a honour we cannot wait to share with you in this our 30th year. Be it on a picnic blanket before The Cherry Orchard, or in deep discussion around Le Dernier Appel – we will gather. Whether revisiting the loved independent production Playthings or laughing in the aisles with Animal Farm – we will gather. Walking with us through all stages of That Shakespeare Play and holding our hands in the tenderness of Every Brilliant Thing – we will gather. Uncovering buried histories in the Heath Ledger Theatre with York and dancing under the stars for the Maali Festival – we will gather.
This is our invitation to you. Come and sit with us. Share these radical ideas, with love.
Always, with love.
Clare Watson, Artistic Director
Black Swan is back! We’re thrilled to announce our 2021 Season “With Love”, a big-hearted invitation to join us in the theatre once again. It’s just not been the same without you.
In our 30th birthday year, our 2021 season “With Love” re-establishes Black Swan State Theatre Company’s strong connection to our heritage, and is an invitation borne of big-heartedness to share theatrical stories in Perth, Western Australia of truth, rebellion, friendship, excess and hope; radical ideas ... with love.
