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.
