Last night Performing Lines WA was named Producer of the Year at the inaugural Pinnacle Awards – Western Australia’s peer-voted industry awards recognising artists, organisations and venues across the state.
In announcing the award, Circuitwest’s Executive Director Ryan Taaffe said: “Performing Lines WA are known for their transformative work and their commitment to challenging and inspiring work.”
“They make arts happen. Someone needs to join the dots between artists, audiences, presenters and supporters,” Taafe said.
“This is how Performing Lines get so much important work in front of diverse people.”
The award acknowledges the impact of significant regional tours of Maybe ( ) Together’s immersive installation for children Small Voices Louder, Sensorium Theatre’s Whoosh! and Oddysea, and their work supporting the development of diverse WA artists through projects like illUMEnate’s Layla Majnun and Mararo Wangai’s Black Brass.
