Dates: November 2021 (upcoming)

Company: Black Swan State Theatre Company

Role: Director


The first show ever staged by Black Swan was Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, at the Octagon Theatre. So, in celebration of their 30th birthday, the company asked its audience to choose which of Shakespeare's 37 plays they wanted to see. Over 1,800 votes were cast, and The Tempest won by the finest of margins. It will be only the fifth different Shakespeare title the company has staged.

This is going to be a very special show, with a whole lot of audience engagement in the making and performing of the work. The spellbinding Pavan Hari is composing music and taking on the part of Ariel in his first major theatrical role. The wonderful Sam Chester will take the role of movement director with an ensemble of some of Perth's finest actors, led by the prodigious talent of Humphrey Bower in the role of Prospero. I'm excited.
