The Red Rattler Theatre is a community-based venue and artists’ studios. The Theatre operates on a not-for-profit basis, and is an artist-run initiative (ARI). The Red Rattler Theatre is a creative playground for performers, musicians, artists, designers, multi-media makers, experimentalists, film-makers, theorists, activists, collective organisers, and local punters. It is fitted with a full PA, stage, LED lighting rig, projector and screen, licensed bar, three non-residential artist studios, and a rooftop garden. The Red Rattler Theatre is the realisation of the collective dream of five local artists, who wanted to create a legal warehouse-style venue to showcase alternative Sydney arts, performance and grassroots activism. The five “Rats” had been hosting events for years at many of the illegal inner-city and inner-west warehouse spaces that have been shut down over the years and dreamed of creating an accessible venue that held all relevant licences to stay open, and would not be at the mercy of landlords, high rents and developers.
