A theatre company, a creative site, an engine for change. Malthouse Theatre is dedicated to extending the boundaries of the performing arts.
It is the imaginative expression of 32 full-time staff reaching out to an even bigger number of local, national and international artists, all dedicated to an ongoing conversation with audiences from all walks of life.
This conversation chooses contemporary theatre as its vehicle: an annual program of adventurous multi-disciplinary work inspired by writers, directors, designers, choreographers, audio artists and performers. Here the combined possibilities of all the theatre arts are offered centre stage.
The quality, depth and longevity of this relationship between artists and audiences are at heart of everything we do.
