Introducing the Festival of Australian Queer Theatre, a ground-breaking event that is set to revolutionise the Australian theatre landscape. We are thrilled to announce that our inaugural season will take place in Ballarat in August 2024, bringing together leading artists and thinkers from the queer theatre community.

  This festival utilises the platform of theatre to disrupt the broader societal narrative around the who and what of queerness. We offer authentic disruption as the vehicle to tell our own LGBTIQA+ stories and reclaim our humanness from the judgements on our existence.

  The program will feature a diverse range of events including talks, panel discussions, script readings of classic queer Australian plays, open rehearsals of new works, and theatre masterclasses led by some of Australia’s most influential queer theatre makers.

  The Festival of Australian Queer Theatre is for the allies, the political, the creative, the curious, and the queer. This festival is for those who want to understand, and for those who want to be understood.

  Prepare yourself for an unforgettable experience as Ballarat transforms into a hub of queer artistic brilliance during the fourth weekend in August. From captivating theatrical works to panel discussions, this festival promises an array of experiences that will challenge what you think you know about LGBTIQA+ communities.

We are registered as: Charity.
