Work with us

ILBIJERRI Theatre Company is the longest-established First Peoples’ theatre company in Australia, which celebrated 30-years strong in 2021. 

We create, present and tour powerful and engaging theatre by First Nations artists to audiences across Australia and the world. As a fast-growing company, recently joining the National Performing Arts Partnership Framework (NPAPF), we are increasing our reach and influence across the performing arts sector.

From time to time we have opportunities to work with our core office and creative team, and at others we offer the change to express your interest in working on our productions - from Social Impact shows which often tour to Artist Development works, to increase knowledge in performance, writing and technical theatre skills.

Are you detail-oriented, financially savvy, and passionate about the arts? Do you identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, with heaps to offer a creative First Peoples-led organisation? Alternatively, are you someone committed to practicing active allyship and eager to learn about the diverse cultures of First Peoples?

The Finance Officer is responsible for completing bookkeeping, compliance and financial reporting for ILBIJERRI.


We currently have two new works in development with applications open for those interested in joining our team!

The ILBIJERRI Ensemble is an artist development program open to Australian First Nations emerging theatre practitioners, young people and community members. 

We are looking for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people aged 18 – 26 interested in learning performance and theatre-making skills over the next 6 months. Our Ensemble program is taking on its next round of young and theatre-interested mob to learn new skills, gain confidence and connect with Community in a culturally safe environment.


As part of our Artist Development Program

BlackStage is a development program offering the opportunity for mentoring in all aspects of theatre production such as set and costume design, lighting, sound, production management, touring and theatre direction.

BlackStage matches emerging First Nations theatre practitioners with an interest in a creative role and/or technical theatre with skilled mentors. Each participant is given a paid position to work on productions, and experiences the creative process firsthand in their chosen discipline.
