Winter Nights is a festival created by The Blue Room Theatre to foster artistic exploration and dialogue around the practices of Western Australia’s theatre artists.

Through a series of opportunities to present and converse, Winter Nights provides a creative space for artists to share, engage and discover their practice in form, craft and process; a testing ground to sample work and establish early engagement with active, eager audiences. Winter Nights welcomes artistic risk – if artists have a new idea or style to test, and an urge to share a live space with a public audience, we invite them to come and bask with us in the warmth of theatre.

Following our highly successful pilot project in 2018, and an expanded program in 2019, Winter Nights will continue in 2020.

Information on the offer and application process for Winter Nights has unfortunately been suspended due to Covid-19 epidemic. We will open the call out at the earliest possible time with a revised format which adapts to the current situation. We encourage all artists to begin to think about projects that can respond to, and be delivered responsibly within, this moment. We can’t wait to have these conversations with you.
