Season Preview: Your guide to the arts in 2021

Black Swan State Theatre Company has announced its 2021 season, with several events carrying over from the COVID-19 disrupted 2020 season and an audience-choice Shakespeare to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary.

“We will bring to the stages old plays in new ways; a bold, original work that confronts us with our past; exciting collaborations with the local WA theatre sector; a contemporary dance work, a two-day free festival part of NAIDOC week, and a choose-your-own onstage adventure in which we will invite our audiences to vote for the Shakespearean play they would like us to present in celebration of our 30th year,” said Artistic Director Clare Watson – “a creatively thrilling yet slightly terrifying proposition for a theatre company!”
