About

Whiskey & Boots is a Perth based performance company.

We make Headphone Verbatim Performance work that examines the challenges and contradictions of the human condition.

Using storytelling with music we take real stories gathered from a community and share them publicly, illuminating moments that are familiar, expose common challenges and secret fears, reminding audiences that we are all complex, ugly, beautiful, brave, funny, flawed and vulnerable.

Our work is low-fi, stripped back and welcoming, the fourth wall doesn’t exist.

Through the sharing of honest moments in intimate spaces we can try to understand each other better, boldly, honestly, playfully.
