Our 30th Birthday

Black Swan began 30 years ago in 1991 with the work of founding Artistic Director Andrew Ross AM. The company was characterised by and celebrated for its original works, Western Australian stories, site-specific and promenade productions presented outside the theatre, Perth Festival presentations that toured extensively, and cross-cultural collaborations that uplifted and celebrated Aboriginal artists.
