Bowerbird Theatre uses physical storytelling, live music, state-of-the-art audiovisual effects, stunning design and archival resources to create exciting performances that challenge, entertain and move our audiences. Our first production, Deceptive Threads, was awarded the Khayrallah International Art Prize (NC State University) and the Philip Parson Prize (ADSA) and garnered excellent reviews over three Melbourne seasons.
Established in 2015, Bowerbird is David Joseph and Karen Berger, who have between them over fifty years experience in the performing arts sector. Collaborating with outstanding video artists, lighting, set and costume designers, our work strives to reach new levels of sophistication, telling stories of our time.
Karen and David share a love of story, song, rhythm and dance and have performed and taught in a wide range of disciplines and contexts. Their decades of practical experience have been augmented with academic study and their passion for and knowledge of the performing arts continues to deepen.
