Performing Lines produces provocative contemporary performance by Australia’s most audacious independent artists. We curate a portfolio of work that is propelled by pressing questions and new ways of seeing the world.
Our purpose is to champion risk and to ensure that the breadth and plurality of Australia’s creative potential is represented, celebrated and enjoyed.
Our vision is informed by our belief in creative independence and freedom of expression.
We champion the unconventional, the marginal, the rebellious and the new. We aim to be the stable base and launching-pad for fearless artists to respond to a dynamic and changing world – not only to reflect who we are but to imagine who we might become.
We co-commission, produce, partner, present or invent, looking for common concerns and shared interests. We invite new possibilities and a tailor-made approach to the way audiences and artists encounter each other.
