Expressions of interest for 2018
Are you a creator of new performance works? Does you work require support to reach the next stage of its development?
The inSPACE development program could be the platform you need.
We provide a unique opportunity for contemporary and experimental theatre, dance and hybrid performance artists to access the venues and services. Each artist / group chosen for the annual inSPACE program is provided with 1–4 weeks in rehearsal (including a provision for equipment hire). Two work-in-progress showings are presented to an invited audience at the end of each inSPACE development. On top of this support, funds will be available to be attributed to artist wages.
- 5 May to June 11 – Expressions of interest open
- 23 June – Applicants contacted regarding outcome of their application
- 5 &/or 6 July – Shortlist of project invited to pitch their work
- 17 July – 2018 program finalised and applicants advised

2017 inSPACE program
Dates and venues of 2017 developments are still being finalised with artists. Current event information below.
A Supposed Truth
Superstition and old wives’ tales reflect a time of tradition and rituals, stories to live by, to make sense of the world and make meaning.
Choreographer Jessie McKinlay
Demons is a dark comedy that is an expressionist take on Albee’s A Delicate Balance and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf set in an apartment on the eve of a funeral.
Director Paulo Castro
Nil By Mouth
A Theatre Republic production, Nil by Mouth begins the moment the Lindt Café siege in Martin Place, Sydney, ends. What happens when the state steps in to control the message and begins to manage a public trauma? Whose story do we choose to tell? What happens to the truth?
Playwright Duncan Graham
The heart is often referred to as the symbolic centre of thoughts and emotions. It represents the place of connection, wholeness, intuition and trust. The question is ‘Why the heart’?
Director/Choreographer Katrina Lazaroff
Cold As Ice
Life from inside the crystal epidemic. An immersive virtual reality experience with real accounts of how lives are destroyed by methamphetamines.
Producer/Director Jamie Harding
Is history linear or cyclical? Can we learn from the past and change our futures, or do we forever repeat ourselves? A subtle and abstract exploration of the complexity of time.
Choreographer Erin Fowler
Girls snuggle into sleeping bags, picking lollies out of their teeth and suppressing giggles. Excited whispers travel across the room... Sometimes I... is a performance exclusively for girls aged 9–11 which explores the chaos, heartache, confusion and joys of being a pubescent girl.
Creators/Performers Ashton Malcolm and Josephine Were
The Lost Art of Listening
An investigation of how people experience and value music in an age of 24-hour connectedness and distraction. A new work for piano and audience-played smartphone choir that questions how humanity’s increasing reliance on connected technology has affected the nature of listening and performing, our distraction and attention.
Composer Hilary Kleinig
