Matriark Theatre exists to give young people everywhere the chance to experience and create extraordinary, original theatre. We want to inspire young people to tell their own stories and in doing so discover ways they can shape their lives for the better.
Our work is colourful and whimsical, a multi-disciplinary spectacle involving live music, puppetry, digital media and physical theatre. Our motto is big action, small spaces, build worlds made of stories in a way that is accessible for anyone.
We also work in small communities to create work with local young people, drawing from their experiences and stories to create fantastic work to be enjoyed by all. Our education program runs the whole year round and is enjoyed by thousands of young people every year. This program engages with schools, museums, arts centres and local councils and focusses on teaching young people simple storytelling skills.
Matriark Theatre is a small arts organisation that packs a huge punch – our impact far exceeds our size. Come along on the journey as we continue to grow and make the arts more inclusive and accessible to audiences far and wide.
