Black Swan values the community in which we live and will continue to explore new ways to stay connected and engaged.
As we step into 2019 we look forward to celebrating stories about home and families, stories of belonging and identity, and we will explore new ways in which we can make theatre accessible to regional and metropolitan communities across WA - the home 'where our heart is'.
In 2018 we were pleased to: participate in the Amana Living Festival program with workshops and panel discussions for the aged; deliver our eighth state-wide Lotterywest Live Broadcast (Summer of the Seventeenth Doll); present two Regional Tours of The Lighthouse Girl and Skylab plus; deliver our artist-in-residence education program FITTER. FASTER. BETTER. in both metro and regional areas. FITTER. FASTER. BETTER. will also be available in 2019 as an incursion in schools or as a school holiday program for regional venues, shires and community groups.
Other ways we have engaged with our community include; offering FREE public play readings, panel discussions and talks. Our metro and regional ambassador program also continues to be a vital link between Black Swan and our community.
For our first production in 2019, Our Town, we have cast 95 members of our Perth community, alongside professional actors, to play the roles they live and breath everyday in the context of this classic drama about everyday life.
Other community engagement/ activation events coming soon.
