Description:

La Boite's Roundhouse Theatre is an epic-intimate space and Australia's only purpose-built theatre-in-the-round. It's also flexible enough to be used as a thrust stage with the audience on three sides. This 400-seat home stage offers a distinctive theatre experience.La Boite's main stage seasons look to new Australian work, fresh international theatre, great texts of the past, and to collaborations with diverse artists and organisations from across the nation and beyond. We aim to converse with the times - to unwrap the past and scrutinise the present as a means of expressing our aspirations for the future.We include work for children and young people and regularly tour regionally and nationally.La Boite Indie is a curated season of four independent works, each of three weeks, occupying our reimagined 95-seat Roundhouse Theatre. La Boite Indie aims to nurture a more sustainable independent theatre culture, to cultivate new audiences, to enable closer ties between independent practice and La Boite, and to help create more outstanding, contemporary works for theatre. The space is offered rent-free to independent theatre companies and artists, and La Boite contributes financial, technical, marketing and artistic assistance. It is a much-needed new platform for independent work in Brisbane.La Boite Scratch is a refreshing, brand new platform for low-tech public showings of works in the early stages of development. Five new La Boite Associate Artists will curate a program of ten works, each shown over two nights in La Boite's Rehearsal Room. And the audience is part of the process.La Boite Learning & Participation creates opportunities to take part in what we do in ways that emphasise learning, creativity and discovery for everyone. We offer 32 weeks of acting master classes for adults, school holiday workshops for young people aged 6-18, professional development workshops for teachers, curriculum-based workshops for school students, internships for tertiary students and recent graduates, and corporate learning workshops for those in business.Our Ambassador program is a year-long program for almost 200 high school and tertiary students from across Brisbane and beyond. Ambassadors attend all productions for free, meet with creative teams, enjoy free workshops through year, learn about La Boite programs, and take a leadership role in introducing the work of La Boite to their peers, schools, and families.
