Before the Siren with Lara Thoms, Hannah Gadsby and dozens of community groups


Performances created for specific sites: an old men's home on the banks of the Swan River that runs through Perth, an exhibition at the Natural History Museum, London and Kings Park, the largest urban park in the Southern Hemisphere.

Sunset was a visceral interactive dance-theatre performance, epic in reach but intimate in experience. The former Sunset Old Men’s Home was transformed into a waiting room between worlds, where classical myth collided with West Australian stories, celebrating the derelict building and the bushland that surrounded it.

Endangered Species was created for the Cape Farewell exhibition, The Ship: The Art of Climate Change, at the Natural History Museum, A collaborative film work created by Sarah Warsop, Siobhan Davies, Deborah May and artist/magician Sam Collins, who with mirrors and technical genius enclosed the small, semi-human figure we filmed in an old museum display case.

Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak. To open the 2017 Perth Festival, Kings Park was transformed into an immersive labyrinth of light and sound, projected onto massive trees, weaving together ancient traditional stories and contemporary scientific thought. Great flocks of birds flew overhead, fish swam through the foliage, people danced and animals played, dramatising the Aboriginal concept of the six seasons of Western Australia and the incredible richness and interdependency of the flora and fauna of South West Australia.
