Following the announcement in late 2015, that its Artistic Director Kate Cherry, will leave the company at the end of 2016 after 9 years in her post, the company has announced Clare Watson as Kate’s successor.
Clare Watson says “I am honoured and excited to be returning to Perth in the role of Artistic Director at Black Swan State Theatre Company. I’m excited about working with Natalie Jenkins and the company to continue to present world class theatre experiences for audiences and build on Black Swan’s distinct voice in the national cultural conversation”.
Clare will officially take over the reins from Kate Cherry on 1 January 2017. She will work alongside Executive Director Natalie Jenkins, as Co-CEO.
