You are most welcome.
The Dire Theatre Company finally has a home! After over half a decade as an indie company out there wandering in the proverbial wilderness, The Pack has settled in to permanent residency at the Illawarra's newest professional, independent, multidisciplinary art and performance space, 'The Forge'.
The Forge is managed by The Dire Theatre Company's founder and Creative Director Adam O'Brien, and Life Is Productions Managing Director (and sometimes SHEkespeare Coordinator!) Kelly Nicholson, and hopes to be an accessible and accommodating space for the regions local professional artists, as well as being the home base for The Dire Theatre Company. The Forge will play host to Dire Original Shows, SHEkespeare performances, Shakepeare in Schools productions, ARTifacts exhibitions, guest speakers, theatrical laboratory session, rehearsals and so much more!
The Forge was created as an art space where our regions indie artists could come to craft and practice their work. With so few indie artists and indie company's able to resource their work, The Forge has been built with one core principal at it's foundation; negotiation. There is nothing set in stone at The Forge, that gives us and the arts community the power to create with more energy expended on the art than on the admin.
