Expression of Interest for Emerging Theatre Artists
For 60 years, Q Theatre has been bringing theatre to the people. In 2024, we continue to champion Western Sydney artists, stories, and communities; creating access to opportunities to learn, create, perform and participate.
Originate is a six-month theatre performance training program for pre-professional and emerging artists aged 18+ who want to build their skills, engage in a rigorous ensemble-based performance practice, and take the next step in pursuing a career in the performing arts. The program culminates in a devised theatre production performed in the Q Theatre.
Led and supported by the Q Theatre team and leading industry professionals, Originate participants build their performance skills through physical and vocal training, experimentation, collaboration and creative problem-solving.
Previous Originate alumni have gone on to produce and perform their own work in theatres and festivals across Sydney, interstate and overseas. If you are passionate about pursuing a career in the performing arts, Originate will open up a world of creative pathways and possibilities.
Originate is open to pre-professional and emerging artists in the first 5 years of their performance practice. Q Theatre champions the development of local Western Sydney artists and those living in, working in, or with a connection to Greater Western Sydney are strongly encouraged to apply. Artists must be 18+ years of age to apply.
