Black Swan State Theatre Company is continuing its successful live broadcasts in 2016 with a sixth broadcast: Moliere's Tartuffe, a new version by Justin Fleming. The production will be broadcast live in high-definition on Friday 4 November 2016 at 7.30pm from the State Theatre Centre of WA in Perth to regional WA audiences over the Westlink network.
Over the last five years Black Swan has delivered a live broadcast of a mainstage production each year. These live performances, broadcast through the Westlink network, are specifically tailored and directed to deliver a high quality theatre experience to regional venues, Community Resource Centres (CRCs) and many more at home who are able to receive the Westlink satellite transmission. The live broadcast of theatre performances is an opportunity for thousands of regional WA citizens who cannot attend Black Swan performances, because of distance or financial constraints, to share a state-wide ‘live’ experience within their own home or community.
The broadcast, supported by Lotterywest, will be screened at regional venues and at a number of Community Resource Centres (CRCs). Participating venues include:
