In the sixth of our series of collaboration case studies, we look at Black Swan State Theatre Company’s production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle produced in association with The National Theatre of China.
In August 2016, Black Swan presented a two week season of Bertolt Brecht’sThe Caucasian Chalk Circle marking the 25th anniversary of the Company. Black Swan collaborated with the Vice President of The National Theatre of China Dr Wang Xiaoying, bringing together Chinese and Australian designers and Western Australian actors in a unique production with cross-cultural opportunities. As Dr Wang said, “After decades of trade, it’s nice to be elevating the exchange between WA and China from the commercial to the cultural.”
