the word tempest means a storm and making waves - a feminist theatre company that explores and empowers female stories and roles. we make raw, visceral and visually arresting work. By women and about women.
tempest would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we work - the Whadjuk Noongar people. This acknowledgement pays respect to the traditional custodians, ancestors and continuing cultural, spiritual and religious practices of Noongar people
Today is the 21st of March, which means there is only 93 days until we make our way, literally, to the other side of the world! Excitement, anxiety and eagerness is running at an all time high as we ready ourselves - finding accommodation, flights, and the funds - to make our way over to San Diego and Hollywood for their 2017 fringe festival season to show off what Tempest Theatre is made of.
Susie has been pouring her heart and soul into researching, creating and writing the beautiful production that is Sparrow. It makes me so proud to be a part of, and perform such work! The touching autobiography of Australian writer and nurse Mollie Skinner is the perfect story to perform to an international audience. Bring on June!!
