Black Swan per­forms Shad­ow­box­ing

Pilbara News - - Education -

Onslow will get a taste of stage per­for­mance this week­end when the Black Swan State Theatre Com­pany comes to town.

The troupe has been per­form­ing the piece Shad­ow­box­ing in metropoli­tan and re­gional venues.

The piece was writ­ten by Perth per­former Ella Hether­ing­ton and was the sec­ond pro­duc­tion cre­ated by Black Swan aimed at high school-aged chil­dren.

Shad­ow­box­ing ex­plores the role of so­cial me­dia and the on­line world with the idea of one’s iden­tity. It fea­tures two char­ac­ters at a party as one of them be­gins to with­draw into an­other world called Shadow where he acts in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent way from how he does in re­al­ity.

The show will be a free per­for­mance at 1pm at the Onslow Multi-Pur­pose Cen­tre on Satur­day which will be fol­lowed by a work­shop at 2.15pm.

For book­ings, con­tact Shire of Ash­bur­ton se­nior ac­tiv­ity of­fi­cer Melissa Raf­fan on 9181 3305 or email Melissa.Raf­fan@ ash­bur­ton.wa.gov.au.
