We seek out the best contemporary writing in Australia and on our international stages – award-winning contemporary plays with themes that resonate with today’s audiences, such as mental health, environmental, legacy and intergenerational relationships.
Whether producing plays in cinemas, found spaces or established venues, we take theatre to audiences wherever we can find them.
In 2018 THEATRE 180 evolved from Agelink Theatre, which was founded in 1992 by Jenny Davis OAM who was later joined by Sally Tunnicliffe under the motto Memories Nourish the Soul. For 30 years Agelink has been the national leader in bespoke plays based on oral and recorded histories, mainly through interviews and reminiscence workshops with seniors.
Also working in the intergenerational space, we excel in delivering programs which connect seniors centres or nursing homes with students from primary and senior schools. Enriching, nourishing and incredibly empowering, these programs serve to acknowledge and validate the contribution of seniors in our society.
Recognising that Arts and Culture play a vital role in the fabric of a functioning, healthy, robust and enlightened society, we are committed to both presenting works for and about, and creating educational opportunities for young people and students.
THEATRE 180 is committed to reaching audiences wherever we can find them, whether it be a city hall or theatre, suburban outer-metro cinema or on a regional tour.
With a focus on connecting communities, we seek to create work that inspire resilience and reflect the stories of Western Australians.
