Theatre, dance and circus highlights 2023: Part 2

Continuing our overview of what’s in store in the coming year for the performing arts, we look at the NT and WA.

Having identified a range of potential performing arts highlights in Queensland, NSW, the ACT and Tasmania last week, now we turn our eye to Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Our two remaining states, Victoria and South Australia, will be covered in detail in the final part of this series next week.

As ever, a caveat: these are works that have caught my eye because of the creative teams involved or the promise of the production; it is not a definitive guide to what’s on in 2023 – especially given that key companies such as Marrugeku, Tracks and Barking Gecko have not yet announced their 2023 seasons – but will nonetheless hopefully offer up some valuable dates for your diary.
