Theatres of War: Wartime Entertainment and the Australian Experience

This exhibition highlights the crucial role played by music and theatre in the lives of Australians during times of conflict, from the First World War to Afghanistan.

Theatres of War explores the transformative power of performance in bringing people together, lifting spirits and offering a form of escapism during times of great adversity.

Rare objects, photographs, posters, letters and more are used to tell stories ranging from concert party performers on the Western Front, female impersonators and opera singers in the jungles of New Guinea, to pop stars bringing music from home to Vietnam. Items are drawn primarily from Arts Centre Melbourne’s Performing Arts Collection, as well as the Australian War Memorial and private collections.

Theatres of War introduces many untold stories of bravery, daring, sadness and joy across the history of Australia’s involvement in conflicts over the past 100 years.

Theatres of War: Wartime Entertainment and the Australian Experience is a touring exhibition proudly presented by Arts Centre Melbourne and supported by the Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund.
