The Last Great Hunt wants to work with and support people from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.

The Last Great Hunt is a collective of Perth-based theatre makers: Gita Bezard, Adriane Daff, Jeffrey Jay Fowler, Arielle Gray, Chris Isaacs and Tim Watts. We are creators, innovators, and above all else, explorers. Within each show we hunt for new ideas and new ways of connecting with our audience.

We make a range of new and exciting theatre in a variety of forms and styles, including new writing, visual and physical theatre and interactive experiences. We strive to give our audience an engaging, challenging and moving night out at the theatre.

The Last Great Hunt acknowledges the first peoples of the lands on which we live, play, and work.

We are on the lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation, and the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.

We pay our respects to these traditional custodians who have nurtured and cared for the land we are on, and we honour their Elders past and present.

We recognise these nations and their long and ongoing contribution to the cultural and environmental landscape we operate within.

Sovereignty of these lands was never ceded.
