 About New Works at Canberra Theatre Centre

The bold and compelling artistic voices of the performance makers of Australia’s Capital deserve to be heard, to be nurtured, to be amplified, and to be respected as vibrant contributors to the national cultural conversation.

We’re reinvigorating our commitment to supporting the development and presentation of new performance work. This multi-year approach to the development of original, contemporary performance made by Canberra’s best professional performance makers will support teams of experienced artists who have a demonstrated and consistent connection to the Canberra community.

We want to explore new ideas, ignite new collaborations and partnerships, and to present these new performances in our venue.

In addition to offering access to The Courtyard Studio, we’ll provide mentorships and professional development opportunities during this time in our venue.
