In a testament to the resilience and adaptability of the WA arts sector, Perth Festival has drawn to a close after successfully shifting the festival back by two weeks due to February’s snap-lockdown following a COVID outbreak.
Through this shift the team at Performing Lines WA worked tirelessly to deliver their full program of four sold-out highly celebrated shows, supporting a total of 90 independent artists, creatives and production crew.
“2021 Perth Festival has been a unique opportunity to highlight the calibre and incredible talent of artists based in Western Australia. Each show, so unique in story and artform, was exceptionally well received and I felt audiences were genuinely excited to see so many different artists on our stages.” says Senior Producer Rachael Whitworth.
“Across our four shows, Performing Lines WA produced truly diverse and important contemporary Australian work which I hope will travel to audiences across the nation and internationally in the future.”
