The Government has announced more than $420,000 for the Queensland Performing Arts Centre to deliver a new theatrical performance, Armistice.
14 May 2018
The performance reflects on Australia’s war history and will open in November 2018. Supported through the Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund, the performance will combine song, music, dance and archival footage to commemorate a century of service since the Armistice that ended World War I.
Armistice will explore ideas of sacrifice and achievement and how these wartime experiences have helped to form Australia’s contemporary national identity.
The performances will also include archival materials and research insights from the Australian War Memorial and the National Film and Sound Archives.
Over the last four years, the Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund has supported the development, production and performance of 78 arts and culture projects focused on enhancing Australia’s understanding of the Anzac legacy.
Projects like these bring our history to life as part of the Anzac Centenary national program, held from 2014 to 2018 to commemorate a century of service by Australia’s servicemen and women.
