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.

Australia Council Theatre Award – Rosemary Myers Q&A

What does winning the award mean to you?
I feel enormously proud and also humbled especially when I think about the breadth of amazing theatre artists across this country. Because the award recognises sustained contribution it prompts many memories so I am experiencing some happy nostalgia.

What are you currently working on?
At Windmill we have lots on the go. Right at his moment I am working with Matthew Whittet and Jonathon Oxlade on the film adaptation of our play School Dance, and we are also in the early stages of developing a new theatre work. Later in the year I am very excited to be directing Atlantis, a new play by Lally Katz, for Belvoir. 

What is the best piece of career advice you would give your younger self? 
Never apologise for being ambitious.
