Commissions

Free Theatre is available for Dialogue Theatre commissions - in 2 forms: Dialogue Theatre or Digital Dialogue. These can run from between 4 and 21 days as an intensive process or spread over a period of up to 3 months in Victoria.  Interstate or international commissions will necessarily be run as intensives.

 

The commissions will engage Pongjit and Richard, internationally recognised as a leading theatre partnership. Their role will cover facilitation, direction, script & screenplay writing, moderating, and video editing. Members of the Free Theatre ensemble can also be engaged in acting and support roles.

 

Host organisations should seek to engage Free Theatre for commissions based on:

  • a conflict or divisive issue to address; 

  • a participant group, involving actors or non-actors; and

  • identified audiences, whether communities, workplaces or the general public.
