Performing Arts WA has revealed its nominations for the 2018 Performing Arts WA Awards and we are thrilled to see so many familiar names in the mix, including some artists we’ve been lucky to collaborate with at Performing Lines WA.
We are particularly excited to see that the awards have been expanded to include Dance, which is a great development for the WA sector. This year’s awards feature a record number of nominees across 23 categories encompassing performance, direction and design.
For panel member and PLWA Associate Producer Zainab Syed, it’s been great to see such a broad portfolio of works making it to the final list, including Frank Enstein, a co-production between Co3 Australia and The Farm that Performing Lines WA will tour nationally in 2021.
“It was such a privilege to be a part of the panel and watch stellar independent artists create such high-quality works over the course of 2018,” Zainab said. “It’s also wonderful to see the PAWA Awards broaden their scope to include Dance and more design categories to ensure creatives in all aspects of a show are recognised for their work.”
