Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA presents
Unsung Heroes is a collection of tour-de-force performances featuring 5 untold stories about 5 extraordinary Western Australians.
In a world premiere season directed by Emily McLean and Joe Paradise Lui, the production is a timely reminder of our shared humanity and our uniquely Western Australian identity, telling stories of courage, adventure, new beginnings, dignity - and life’s music.
Originally planned to be staged in the Studio Underground as part of Black Swan State Theatre Company's 2020 season, these powerful pre-recorded solo performances will be live streamed for free from Tuesday 21 July. Each live stream will be followed by a live Q&A facilitated by Resident Artist Ian Michael. From Wednesday 22 July, registered attendees will be able to view all the performances on demand.
