Creating Grug: An interview with Ted Prior

In times like ours that are saturated with content and information, creating something with longevity is a rarity. Icons are becoming fewer and far between. Ted Prior’s Grug stands apart.

My Strangest Audition

The life of a performer is an unusual one. It’s filled with wonder and a bit of glamour, yes, but also a lot of uncertainty. You’re always thinking about the next gig or if you spent enough time learning your lines. At the centre of all of this swirling uncertainty is the audition. Episode Five…

Composing with Christine Johnston

Christine Johnston is one of our favourite performers. Whether it’s as the ferociously hungry witch Baba Yaga, or as one third of the beloved The Kransky Sisters, Johnston’s performances are always bold, funny and completely original.

Honey, I’m Home Book Club

A natural response to upheaval is to set goals. To give yourself structure, something to work towards.

Making Lemonade: Developing a new show

We’ve been talking about making a show with our friends the multi-talented Jude Henshall and Ellen Steele for a long time. With our touring and performance activity put on hold due to restrictions relating to COVID-19, we decided to fast-track the creative development for their new work. New creations by some of favourite artists seemed…

Making Lemonade: Introducing Honey, I’m Home

Chris Edser, Jonathon Oxlade and Renate Henschke had a really great idea. We had creatives on the payroll who couldn’t perform or go on tour onstage due to public safety restrictions relating to COVID-19. It was the perfect opportunity for us to Make Lemonade.
