Renowned as experimenters and innovators, our small to medium performing arts companies generate most of the new work produced in Victoria each year, contributing to the state's reputation as a thriving and innovative arts capital.
Melbourne's independent theatre scene is the largest and most active in the country and it can be hard to navigate. Originally set up in 2005, those in the know have found their way around using theatrealive.com.au, and now after a major upgrade of the website, even more people are able to tap into this great site.
On any night in Melbourne, audiences have on average between 20 to 30 independent theatre shows to choose from. Theatre Alive, an insider's guide to what's on and where to find it in Victoria's independent performing arts scene, aims to showcase what's on, give the latest news and reviews and reveal special offers and competitions.
Theatre Alive helps our smaller companies to reach large audiences and is a one stop shop for audiences - whether they're planning a night out or wanting to learn more about our dynamic independent arts scene.
