The Last Great Hunt is made up of seven of Australia’s brightest and most talented theatre makers - Gita Bezard, Adrianne Daff, Jeffrey Jay Fowler, Arielle Gray, Chris Isaacs, Katherine Osborne and Tim Watts -each having a passionate commitment to theatre and experimentation with form. Together they create immersive experiences using site specific performance and traditional theatre presentations which are varied in style, including puppetry, visual theatre and text based plays.

The Last Great Hunt aims to produce quality and relevant new work that is simultaneously artistically rigorous and engages audiences to be moved, inspired and challenged. Within this ethos, the artists have diverse range of aesthetics that results in the creation of an eclectic mix of work. 

Since their inception in 2013, The Last Great Hunt has won many awards for new work including the prestigious ‘Martin Sims Best New WA Work’ for interactive work, MONROE & ASSOCIATES and the ‘Melbourne Fringe Award’ for FAG/STAG at the 2015 Perth Fringe World Festival as well as the ‘Best New Play’ award for ELEPHENTS at the Performing Arts WA Industry Awards and the ‘Martin Sims Best New WA Work’ at Fringe World 2016 for THE GREAT RIDOLPHI.

In 2017, The Last Great Hunt has or will present five new works, including a sell out season at Fringe World for PRICE TAG as part of The Blue Room's Summer Nights programme. Other work in the pipeline includes ADVICE at the State Theatre Centre in May, THE IRRESISTIBLE at PICA in June, BALI at the Subiaco Arts Centre in October and HOTEL (working title) a site-specific work at the Riverview Hotel in November/ December.

During the Get Together, Creative Producer Sean Walsh, along with representatives from the core Artist group will discuss the processes the company employs to produce their work, and explore opportunities to collaborate with regional presenters to engage community audiences and the possibilities surrounding the development of new work.
