"A stage space has two rules: (1) Anything can happen and
(2) Something must happen" - Peter Brook, The Empty Space
Technicolour Theatre Company acknowledges and celebrates the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals; committing to creating and maintaining an environment that respects and represents diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences. Part of this includes our continued commitment to equitable treatment and elimination of discrimination in all its forms at all organisational levels, throughout all programs and casting opportunities. Therefore, we are committed to the casting of culturally and linguistically diverse performers, women performers, and performers with disability in roles where race, age, ethnicity, sexual preference, gender or the presence or absence of disability is not relevant.
