Who We Are

Our Story

GREAT STORIES WELL TOLD

“An innovative and exciting theatre company showcasing Western Australian drama in a compelling way that truly engages and impacts its audiences.” Leanne and Sam Walsh AO – Patrons

“Great theatre is the living, breathing fire of humanity. A place where earth, air and fire come together and, through the shared experience of storytelling, transform people and elicit social change. It’s this element that drives us and it’s how we help measure the value of what we do. THEATRE 180 stands for authenticity and integrity, respect and inclusivity. Agents for social change, we seek through stories to understand our past, in order to illuminate the present, and thereby dream our future.Artistic Director, Stuart Halusz

THEATRE 180 wishes to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work, the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation, and those of the land on which we tour. We wish to acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city, region and State of WA, and pay our respects to their Elders, past and present.

Don't miss this amazing cast shine in Joe Penhall's Blue/Orange! 

Feisty, intense, funny, evocative, insightful, manipulative and gripping are just a few words that come to mind after seeing a run at rehearsal today 😊

“Joe Penhall has the rare gift of engaging both emotion and intellect and making you care desperately about the outcome” The Guardian

“Blue/Orange explores the connection between ethnicity and perceptions of mental health…it illuminates the way psychiatry can be strategic – and anatomises the politics of medical care.” Evening Standard (London)

“In the great way of comedy, Blue/Orange touches on great themes: self-advancement at the expense of others and perceptions of sanity.” The Independent (London)
