Intimate Spectacle is an independent performing arts producing company based in Sydney, Australia. We work across genres, from contemporary theatre & dance theatre to live art, interactive performance, and events in between “the arts” and popular culture. We’re interested in work that’s engaging, surprising, perhaps playful, but with substance, and full of heart. We see “contemporary” arts practice not as intimidating or difficult, but simply as art that speaks for and to the times we live in. Great performance connects artists and audiences through memorable, transformative shared experiences. For us this usually involves inviting the audience into some kind of relationship beyond passive spectatorship – perhaps animating the spaces, physical or virtual, in which we live, work or play. We are building a producing model that’s flexible, responsive yet proactive, and artist-focused. And that works reciprocally, that’s about exchange and sharing as much as gigs and touring, whether it’s working locally, regionally, nationally, internationally, or anywhere in between.
