ARTIST DEVELOPMENT

Malthouse Theatre collaborates with local and international artists to create inventive performances that cut to the core of the human experience. Our work explores the world, personally, socially, and politically to provoke a dialogue with and within audiences.

The Engine Room is the research and development arm of Malthouse Theatre. Script commissions, production workshops, artist residencies, professional development programs, bespoke initiatives, and one-off experiments—the Engine Room is the creative laboratory that makes our mainstage program possible.

Here on our website, we offer a range of resources to show you what we do and how we do it, including a number of specific programs we run to ensure new artists are coming through the building. 

Over on the Engine Room Blog, you can read about the work we’re making now, the ideas behind it, and the artists who make it.

For artists looking to engage with us, the best ways to make sure you're on our radar are to introduce yourself over email, invite us to see your work or apply for one of our artist development programs. And for the latest updates, subscribe to our eNews.
