Belvoir Launches 2011 Season

Belvoir welcomes a new Artistic Director, a new logo, fresh new talent and a new, stripped back name in 2011 as the company celebrates the launch of its inaugural season under Ralph Myers.

Belvoir’s incoming Artistic Director, Ralph, said, ‘We’ve had a great time putting this season together – we’ve talked with dozens of directors, playwrights, actors and designers about the work they really want to make. From here, we’ve found 13 projects we’re extremely excited about presenting. They will be created by the most extraordinary line-up of directors, actors and creatives, positioning maestros alongside the best of the new blood.

‘Belvoir has always had, and will continue to have, a commitment to supporting Australian playwrights because we believe that the world on our stage should engage the world as it exists outside our walls. We strive to support and nourish our playwrights in ways that overseas practitioners have long taken for granted.

‘Every generation also rediscovers itself in the classics. This season amongst others we have plays by Shakespeare, Ibsen, Gorky, Chekhov and Lawler. These works, staged here and now by us, become contemporary and become Australian’.
