(Premium content) Premium content

The Australian Theatre Forum, held this week in Canberra, showcases an industry on the upswing despite the new competition.

Canberra in May is generally a foggy place, sprinkled with grey mornings and public servants in long dark coats. But in 2013, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the national capital, there's been a welcome burst of cultural energy in Canberra – and not just Patricia Piccinini's pendulous Skywhale. Also gracing Canberra this week is a constellation of arts industry events, most notably the Australian Theatre Forum.
