OUR STORY

OUR STORY

We met during an arts internship in 2013, and quickly discovered a shared love of live performance. During our frequent theatre dates, we had robust post-show discussions that ranged from what we loved in the shows that we witnessed, to the gaps that we had noticed in the theatre landscape. After many conversations, daydreaming, researching, and nail-biting, we took the leap and decided to produce our first work with the support of Melbourne Fringe in 2016. The overwhelming positive response encouraged us to officially launch our company in 2017 and continue to present theatre shows, workshops, and presentations ever since.
