Peter Hawes


Peter started in the performing arts assisting backstage set construction and performances for the repertory society in his home town of Broken Hill.  Next came a role as Sound Mixer and Roadie for the local bush band “Hammer ‘n’ Tap”.  When Out of the Box moved its performances to the Roxbury in 2009 Peter was asked if he could bring his technical expertise to the space. Since then he has designed, developed and manages Out of the Box’s unique creative lighting rig. Peter had always liked Playback Theatre because of the spontaneity involved for both the audience and the performer.  ‘I like the way a personal story distils the complexity of our life experience into what really matters.  Playback theatre is playful and risky in a good way, full of little surprises and insights’.
