Blayne Welsh


Blayne is a First Nations (Wailwan) theatre maker, playwright, director, devisor, facilitator, storyteller and performer. He has worked both locally and internationally since 2015, from black box theatres to schools, from footy fields to prisons. He is most interested in the ways applied theatre, story and drama can be used to facilitate connection to country, empower communities, strengthen culture and most importantly, heal. Blayne completed his Bachelor of Arts degree with Honours in Theatre and Drama at La Trobe University, and in 2019 was awarded a Fulbright Postgraduate Scholarship to study in the United States.

Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.
