In response to the unfolding health situation, Theatre Works and Romi Kupfer have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone Singing Swallows as a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19.
These are difficult and incredibly complex times and it is with a heavy heart that we have made this decision – but the safety of all the people we work with and welcome to our theatre is our number one priority and we look forward to presenting Singing Swallows later this year.
The performances running from 17 – 26 April have been cancelled.
We are working with the artists to reschedule the show at a later date here at Theatre Works, 14 Acland Street, St Kilda.
In the following form, you will have the option of receiving a full refund or you can also choose to donate the cost of your ticket to the artists. Theatre Works will pass the full value of your ticket (less the $2.50 booking fee) to the “Singing Swallows” team. This act of generosity will help the artists get through this unprecedented time and ensure they will be able to continue to create and present this work later in the year: https://forms.gle/4oMBHQGd8h2i178YA
We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
If you are able and want to help support our artists and arts workers that are the lifeblood of our theatre, please consider donating what you can.

“A storyteller can attempt to tell the human tale, can remind us that the swallows still sing around the smokestacks.” – Jane Yolen.
SINGING SWALLOWS premieres at Theatre Works during Yom Hashoah / Holocaust Remembrance Day 2020.
A beautiful and symbolic representation of a storytelling experience that cannot be replicated. An early start to understanding the Holocaust, connecting to young peoples lives through voice recording and visual storytelling.
