Artistic Practice

I believe in the collaborative power of theatre. Creating an ensemble and learning a shared vocabulary that transcends cultural differences and finds common ground to create something original and dynamic.

Belloo’s culture is underpinned by our company’s foundation values of Research and Exploration, Steadfast Commitment, Artistic Integrity and Heart. 

We work from a collaborative framework that traverses text and physical form across multiple art forms to produce original contemporary Australian theatre experiences. 

Starting points for our work can include social justice issues, biographical stories and research, which we respond to with written or physical responses through the prism of contemporary form. This gives us the flexibility to move between traditional playwriting, contemporary performance making, devised theatre and other art forms.

We develop a physical language at the same time as we are developing the written text so that both aspects come together to give our work the sculptural vocabulary that is its signature.

We build experiences around performances; providing other avenues of engagement for audiences. These have included memory booths, art exhibitions and public forums.

We use collaborative, genuine and rigorous processes to make work that is impactful and memorable.
