Adelaide Fringe literally takes over the entire city with over 1000 events staged in pop up venues in parks, warehouses, lane-ways and empty buildings as well as established venues such as theatres, hotels, art galleries, cafes and town halls. Adelaide Fringe’s Honey Pot program is a support service for national and international programmers and presenters looking for hot contemporary artworks for their venue and festival programs. Honey Pot provides accommodation support, networking at all levels, complimentary tickets, matchmaking, VIP Fringe club entry and more.

With visiting casts including Sir Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh and Katharine Hepburn, the theatre has also played host to world-renowned touring companies including Ireland’s Abbey Theatre and The Royal Shakespeare Company.

It took two years and over $11 million to refurbish and restore the building to the modern, yet aesthetically traditional facility it is today. His Majesty’s Theatre is the performing home of the West Australian Ballet and West Australian Opera and celebrated its centenary in 2004.

    About

    The Princess Theatre in Launceston is a beautiful old proscenium arch theatre built in 1911 by a vaudeville entrepreneur, Marino Lucas. The local newspaper at the time was rapturous in its praise. “The dome and ceiling are a dream of loveliness”. The auditorium still retains the original dome and pressed tin ceiling. The façade and foyers were renovated in 1939 in the art deco style giving an interesting mix of architectural styles. On opening night in August 1911 the backstage area was still to be completed so silent films were shown. This proved to be so lucrative that the Theatre operated as a cinema until 1970. In that year the Launceston City Council bought the Princess for the bargain price of $71,000. The Theatre opened as a live venue to great fanfare on November 16 1970 with a gala performance by the Australian Ballet. The theatre seats 1065. A more recent addition to performing arts spaces in Launceston was the Earl Arts Centre which opened in 1993. Located at the back of the Princess the Earl is a black box theatre with the most common seating configuration accommodating 191. It has a performance area of approximately 9.6m square with no fly lines.

    A Dream of a Theatre – Hobart’s Theatre Royal was officially opened on 8th March, 1837. It offered its original patrons entertainment ranging from music hall to cockfights and could even help to quench their thirsts at The Shades – a seedy tavern that operated beneath the auditorium with its own entrance into the theatre pit. Today the Theatre Royal is not just a piece of Tasmania’s history but a living centre for the performing arts. It presents a comprehensive annual subscription programme as well as a wide variety of productions staged by visiting professional and local amateur companies. Dubbed by Noel Coward “a dream of a theatre”, the Theatre Royal is Australia’s oldest working theatre and one of its most beautiful treasures. The Theatre Royal in Hobart is Australia’s oldest theatre and the only example of Victorian “bijou” style remaining in this country. The Theatre is an integral part of Hobart’s artistic community and can offer sponsors opportunities to gain exposure and build loyalty in a market that is consistent with a range of consumer and industry groups. The Theatre Royal aims to provide a high quality cultural venue for the presentation of the performing arts and related services, encouraging maximum community patronage and usage, to service the cultural arts and entertainment needs of the community by programming quality arts events and to maintain the best possible industry standards in the management of the Theatre for the future benefit of all Australians.

    About

    The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, led by charismatic Artistic Director Paul Dyer, celebrates the music of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries with excellence, flair and joy. Comprising leading specialists in informed performance practice from all over Australia, the Brandenburg performs using original edition scores and instruments of the period, breathing fresh life and vitality into Baroque and Classical masterpieces %u2013 as though the music has just sprung from the composer’s pen. The Orchestra’s name pays tribute to the Brandenburg Concertos of J.S. Bach, whose musical genius was central to the Baroque era. Since its foundation in 1989, the Brandenburg has collaborated with such acclaimed and dynamic virtuosi as Andreas Scholl, Emma Kirkby, Andreas Staier, Philippe Jaroussky, Elizabeth Wallfisch, Genevieve Lacey and Andrew Manze. Through its annual subscription series, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra performs before a live audience in excess of 30,000 people, and hundreds of thousands more through national broadcasts on ABC Classic FM. In addition, the Orchestra tours nationally and has a regular commitment to performing in regional Australia. Since 2003 the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra has been a member of the Major Performing Arts Group, which comprises 28 flagship national arts organisations supported by the Australia Council for the Arts. Since its beginning in 1990, the Brandenburg has been popular with both audiences and critics. In 1998 The Age proclaimed the Orchestra had ‘reached the ranks of the world’s best period instrument orchestras’. In 2001 The Guardian exclaimed that the Orchestra’s sold-out London Proms performance at the Royal Albert Hall was ‘an event that just seemed to stop the audience in its tracks – and had everyone roaring for more. The whole concert was just bliss, every single stupendous second of it.’ And recently the Sydney Morning Herald described the Orchestra as ‘decidedly rapturous and deserving of every bit of the footstamping, cheering ovation’. The Brandenburg’s fifteen recordings with ABC Classics include five ARIA Award winners for Best Classical Album (1998, 2001, 2005, 2009 and 2010).

    About

    Since 2004 Circa has been at the frontier of new circus – creating powerful works of circus art that challenge, thrill and delight. Featuring an ensemble of multi-skilled circus artists under the direction of Yaron Lifschitz, Circa’s award-winning works have been seen in 33 countries across six continents. At the centre of Circa is the art. Shows that push the boundary of the circus artform, blur the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus and yet are a unique, singular ‘Circa’ experience. Our recent creations in repertoire include “Opus” – an epic creation featuring 14 acrobats and the Debussy string quartet playing the music of Shostakovich live; “Beyond” – featuring eclectic skills, bunny heads and a joyous sense of the surreal; and “Carnival of the Animals” – a multimedia reworking of the Camille Saint-Saens classical musical suite into a circus spectacle for all ages. Circa has National Touring Status (2015 – 2017) which will see Circa build loyal followers and find new audiences in towns and cities in all states and territories. A key focus for our national touring is deep community engagement with regional youth circuses, schools and communities and the creation of new shows in regional centres collaborating with local artists. National Touring Status makes possible longer seasons, deeper community engagement, greater programming flexibility for presenters, and return visits. Circa also manages arTour. arTour supports performing artists and producers to tour work through regional Queensland and nationally. arTour also assists Queensland presenters to program performance work for their local audiences.

Theatre-makers at Monkey Baa will have the opportunity to experiment as they develop new ways of telling Australian stories, and particularly of adapting popular works of our national children’s literature for the stage. Monkey Baa built its reputation touring new work and presenting theatre workshops to young people in rural and regional Australia. The Darling Quarter Theatre is about the same size as the theatres across regional and rural Australia in which Monkey Baa usually presents its work. This means it’s perfect for developing and rehearsing new work to take on tour. Monkey Baa’s new home will be a centre of excellence for theatre for young people in Australia. It’s a time of exciting growth for the company and for young audiences across the country.

    About

    “What explosion of possibility happens when performance-makers connect with one another across cultures and communities in a whole range of ways, around performance-making for children?” The PaperBoats is an international partnership platform for performance-makers, pioneering new ways of connecting and creating. The TuTwo Shows PROJECT is a 5 year, “proof of concept” venture between international communities, which will unravel the possibilities and potentials of The PaperBoats platform. This project will generate performances for children across a number of international communities, prompted by a common activating idea. The partnership communities will share their ideas, practices and content with each other allowing outcomes from one community to be adapted, reconfigured, re-mixed or used to inspire new material in the other communities. Involved in the first iteration of this project are partnership communities in Australia, USA, New Zealand and Singapore. New ways of working with producers, presenters, universities, educators and audiences are evolving.

    About

    We help to shape creative spaces that perform as well as the artists themselves.
    Our theatre and venue consultants understand the artistic, operational, technical and commercial needs of all types of venues. We work with colleagues across the firm to maximise Arup’s unparalleled experience in the multi-disciplinary design of performing arts facilities.

    Read about some Arup Theatre or Concert hall design and engineering projects:
    We work with our clients to understand their needs and give the advice and technical support that will help turn their creative vision into a reality. Our specialists help architects to design spaces that inspire and delight while delivering the best in theatrical functionality, acoustical excellence, visual quality and audience comfort. We consult on the design and renovation of venues across all sectors – from intimate spaces for drama and music to large regional performing arts centres, from media production studios to the highest quality broadcast TV and radio concert halls, and from conference and exhibition centres to entertainment arenas. Our team includes experts in brief development, feasibility, venue planning, auditorium design, stage engineering, seating design, production, specialist architectural lighting and performance sound, video and communications systems design. We can provide a fully integrated service or a tailored package of skills.
    The ingredients of success:
    We anticipate each detail that makes a venue function better – in front of an audience or out of sight. Seeing the complete picture equips us to deliver success on complex projects, such as the recently opened Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin for Live Nation – who are now able to bring top international theatrical productions to Ireland – or to develop the technology brief that helped turn the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow, into a world-class hub for experimental art. Arup’s technical strength equips us to meet the increasingly complex requirements of arts venues. We draw on Arup’s exceptionally wide range of skills, from highly specialist structural and mechanical engineering for large movable structures to the most advanced audience-flow simulation. This helps us optimise safety and the revenue generation potential of front-of-audience and front-of-house areas. Many of our people have backgrounds in performing and operating venues and so understand the needs of performers, technicians and operators. We can weave those requirements into an efficient design that makes optimal use of space and budget to deliver venues that are both cost-effective to build and economically sustainable to operate. We seamlessly partner with other Arup specialists, most often drawing on our acoustics, lighting and information technology skills. For Ahmed Adnan Saygun Arts Centre, Turkey’s most advanced concert hall, close partnership between acoustic consultant, stage engineer and technology specialist, working in close cooperation with the architect, allowed this exceptional project to be delivered on a tight budget while maintaining the architect’s and client’s vision.
    Venues for the future:
    A future-fit performing arts space must be adaptable to the evolving requirements of audiences, artists, programmers and funders. Increasingly, cultural and economic drivers require projects to be commercially and environmentally sustainable. We design versatile theatres for diverse programming. We do this with flexible staging, seating and technological infrastructure so that the venue can quickly adapt to maximise potential revenue. For Kings Place, London, our theatre consultants helped the architect fully integrate hidden technological conferencing systems so that the music recital hall’s visual impact was not compromised. We bring new life to old spaces such as the Jerome Robbins Theater, New York, where we led the design team to renovate an unpopular existing theatre with poor acoustics, sightlines and technical systems. The revitalised venue is now a new home to the Baryshnikov Dance Foundation and the Wooster Group – and an acclaimed space for dance, theatre, music and multimedia, with adjustable acoustics and advanced technical systems. The growing ‘green theatre’ movement draws on Arup’s ability to merge sustainability and arts expertise. We responded to Arcola Theatre’s aspiration to become the first carbon-neutral theatre with a study that laid out a sustainability-driven technical brief and concept design for the proposed Future Arcola. The proposal included natural ventilation and underground cooling among a range of energy-efficiency measures.

    About

    WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff is a multi-disciplinary engineering design consultancy with over 34,000 staff world-wide. With in-house specialist disciplines to provide holistic design solutions for the modern day performing arts venues, our integrated Arts and Venue focus project team comprises of specialised engineers and consultants covering the following aspects:

    Architectural and Building Acoustics
    Theatre Design
    Specialist Lighting
    Audio Visual
    Building Services – Mechanical and Electrical Engineering for venues
    Many more
    The success of Arts and Culture venues rely on deliveries of innovative and excellent technical solutions for each of the above disciplines independently, and the seamless integration of them resulting in the synergy of the audiences’ visual and aural experience. At WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, we take the time necessary to understand and work closely with clients, stakeholders, and multi-disciplinary design teams, to develop spaces of exceptional performance in a holistic approach. In addition to achieve the technical and subjective aspirations for technically critical performance and production spaces, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff endeavours to provide innovative yet cost effective solutions which also complement the architectural aesthetic intents.

    Despite the size of our team, we work as one unit around the globe, meaning that we call on our international expertise on a daily basis to ensure that our designs are truly representative of international best practice, whilst reflecting local requirements and project specific design expectations.

    The acoustics team at WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff is one of the world’s largest of specialist acoustic, noise and vibration consultants with over 150 technical staff. Our Asia-Pacific team consists of specialist acoustic, electro-acoustic and theatre design consultants throughout Australia and New Zealand – headquartered in Sydney, NSW.

    Using the latest specialist acoustical computer modelling software, our clients are able to hear or ‘auralise’ a room’s acoustics long before designs are finalised and the building has been constructed. This subjective assessment allows for fine-tuning of the room’s sound characteristics, potentially saving time and money on expensive remedial treatments that may otherwise be necessary following project completion.

    Locally, our engineers have been involved in some of the most iconic projects in Australia and around the world. The diversity of our experience, coupled with our comprehensive and integrated range of acoustic services, allows us to provide concept-to-commissioning noise and vibration consultancy to our clients.

    Some of WSP’s relevant project experience include:

    Danish Radio Concert Hall
    Sydney International Convention Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct
    Downtown Dubai Opera House
    Walsh Bay Arts Precinct, Sydney
    Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre
