Emerge Company

A new pre-professional training and development program for early-career artists aged 18 to 25 with an interest in pursuing a career in theatre and creating their own work.

This program brings together actors, theatre makers, writers, designers, creators, and anyone developing their own arts practice, to train, collaborate, and create.

Mentored by industry professionals across a series of weekly workshops, the Emerge Company will explore acting techniques and theatre making processes, collaborate on arts projects, and develop skills to create and produce their own independent theatre.

This program is for emerging artists eager to discover new theatrical possibilities, challenge their own creative practice, and gain the tools to build a sustainable career in the arts. Artists will work together to form a company, and create an imaginative, dynamic new work for performance.

The Emerge Company will showcase the work of our most promising emerging theatre makers.
