La Boite HWY Festival of New Work 2020
Putting the future of Brisbane's theatre scene into the spotlight.
Like theatre? Then you should love La Boite's returning HWY Festival of New Work. It doesn't just bring one single new show to the stage — it presents a snapshot of the current state of the city's performing arts.
And just how is the Kelvin Grove-based company managing to do that? Just let us count the ways. Running until Wednesday, March 18, the 2020 program is overflowing with works in progress, as well as talks and forums that showcase fresh scripts and ideas, ponder issues of relevance to today's theatre practitioners, and fine-tune essential skills.
If you're an emerging theatre type, that means workshops on creativity, getting political and being inclusive, plus plenty of chatter at panel sessions that'll help you broaden your thinking.
And if you just like to watch the end result of someone else's creative endeavours, then you can check out various efforts in various stages of evolution — and see tomorrow's hits well before anyone else.
