“No amount of observations of white swans can allow the inference that all swans are white, but the observation of a single black swan is sufficient to refute that conclusion.” David Hume

In a world of disruptions, some will be storytellers, and some will be story makers. It is the story makers that will be the heroes of the future.
In Ancient Greece, Theatre was developed as a commentary on the social and political happenings of the day. If a General went too far in pursuit of victory, say, by killing women and children in his campaign, the worst he might expect upon his return to Greece, was a scathing portrayal at the local amphitheatre.
But theatre also served a more important purpose; it was a voice that questioned the status quo on behalf of the citizens. As such, it played, and one might still credibly argue, continues to play a vital role in the machinations of what we call democracy.
In essence, theatre is an extension of the privilege of voting and freedom of speech. It provides direction, education, laughter and a sense of purpose for the assembled crowd.
Black Swan Theatre carries on this proud tradition by using our multiple event platforms to do exactly as the Greeks did – to ask the questions to which people wish to learn the answers – by focusing on you and your immediate needs, while providing actionable direction and vital information to move your organisation forward.
We don’t give answers, we frame questions in a way that illuminate pathways to potential solutions, and create impact-driven momentum for your organisation.
If you are interested in hosting a Black Swan Theatre Event in your city, or you would like to find out more about how our experts can bring the future to your organisation or region, please contact us.
