Theatre

The theatre sector in Australia is a ‘broad church’ which encompasses several spheres of activity. This includes commercial, professional subsidised, unsubsidised independent, participatory, community, and amateur theatre. Within these spheres there is a diversity of genres, including: plays and scripted work, music theatre and cabaret, circus and physical theatre, installation theatre performance, puppetry, media-based theatre work, live art, and contemporary inter-disciplinary performance. 

The view from 2014 is of a sector that is keen to keep pace with the broader environment. Theatre artists, organisations and enablers (such as producers) are highly attuned to the interests and needs of national and international audiences, and evolving platforms for engagement.
