Performing Lines WA was established in 2009 in Perth and works exclusively with Western Australian artists to produce transformative contemporary performances that challenge the status quo.

As the Western Australian arm of the national organisation, Performing Lines, we curate a portfolio of works that are propelled by pressing questions and new ways of seeing the world. Our mission is to showcase the work of some of the state’s most audacious independent artists, and to push the boundaries of what’s possible in contemporary performance.


In everything we do, we acknowledge that we live on Aboriginal land and constantly learn from the wisdom of First Peoples.

Where we are and the history that precedes us informs how we work and how we move forward.
