BLACK SWAN THEATRE Get your theatre fix at home


In response to COVID-19 and the social distancing restrictions on mass gatherings, Black Swan Theatre, in a company-first initiative, will launch its new digital platform: Black Swan Home Theatre”, through which a digital production of Unsung Heroes: A Festival of Western Australian Stories will be available to be live-streamed for free to registered users from Tuesday, July 21.

Distributed across the company’s suite of digital channels, Black Swan Home Theatre audiences will find video messages from their actors, behind-the-scenes interviews with artists and creatives, backstage tours of workshops and the digital production of Unsung Heroes: A Festival of Western Australian Stories. Initially planned as part of the 2020 Season, Unsung Heroes is a collection of tour-de-force solo performances that celebrate everyday Western Australians who have done extraordinary things, in a world premiere season directed by Emily McLean and Joe Paradise Lui.

The performances tell stories of courage, adventure, new beginnings, dignity, and life’s music, created, written, curated and performed by Western Australians in WA. The production is a timely reminder of our shared humanity and of our uniquely Western Australian identity. The works have been written by local playwrights Gita Bezard, Barbara Hostalek, Chris Isaacs, Hellie Turner, and Mararo Wangai. Each Unsung Heroes monologue was filmed onstage. A live Q&A facilitated by Resident Artist Ian Michael will follow each live stream. All performances will also be made available on demand.
