About The Strawboat Collective:
The Strawboat Collective is a newly formed, small independent theatre company based in Fremantle, Western Australia. The Strawboat Collective is home for both emerging and experienced artists providing them with opportunities to explore, experiment, create and develop new works for theatre. At the heart of the company’s philosophy is artistic expression, collaboration and accessibility. The creative collective between playwrights, actors, directors and others involved in the artistic process ensures the formation of a diverse and cohesive ensemble that contributes to every part of the production. The company is committed to producing new works which challenge audiences to think about what it is to be human and the connectivity that exists between one person and another. The Strawboat Collective’s vision of community and accessibility means that productions are not confined to just theatres but can take place in alternative performance spaces such as houses, laneways, shopfronts, parks and temporary pop up venues.
