Wesfarmers Arts has supported Bell Shakespeare since 1996 and remains this leading Australian theatre company’s longest standing corporate partner. Shakespeare’s work explores human experience at its limits. It was never just meant to be read. Bell Shakespeare believe the only way to truly appreciate his work is to see it brought to life through live performance. Shakespeare and other great works they present are not stuck in the past, but that they are the key to exploring our present and imagining our future. These works challenge our beliefs and urge us to see ourselves in a new light.
These plays are not static and neither is Bell Shakespeare. They have been travelling the country for more than 22 years, bringing classic theatre to Australia, looking for new ways to educate, collaborate and recreate. Bell Shakespeare presents Australian theatre’s most comprehensive and wide-reaching education programme, allowing students and teachers, young and not-so-young, across this great country, to experience Shakespeare the way it was meant to be experienced.
