Antipodes Theatre Company (ATC) seeks to provide a collaborative and diverse environment for producing professional theatre in Melbourne. Programming includes: full-length plays and musicals, the Ricochet Free Reading Series, workshops for professional artists, and youth programs.
We embrace challenging and enlightening work from a variety of artists. Work that focuses on duality within the human condition. Work that looks at situations from a unique angle or exposes what it’s like to step into someone else’s shoes. ATC was founded by New York City transplants who currently find themselves as close to the antipode of that location as they’re ever likely to get.
Finally, ATC strives for inclusive hiring practices through a commitment to at least 50% of all positions filled by women, people of color, people with disabilities, trans and gender non-conforming people, and other members of historically or culturally marginalized communities.
Current company members include: David Butler, Melissa David, Kristy Griffin, Brandon Pape, Chloe Towan, and Don Winsor
