JUTE Theatre Company passionately engages others in the telling of new Australian stories through theatre that stimulate the mind, revitalize the spirit & lift the heart. Come on a journey with us to change your life!
JUTE is a house of ideas and action that exists to fan the fire in the bellies of regional professional theatre artists. JUTE inspires and supports these artists to create new stories that contribute to our regional identity, our social history and our future possibilities.
At JUTE’s heart is text based diverse Australian stories drawn from many regional writers through our development programs. We infuse each of these very individual works with a theatrically compelling integration of text, performance, visual and sound design. We engage highly regarded artists from outside and within the region to populate this work.
All of these elements create fresh, surprising and captivating theatre for our audience, with whom we actively engage to deepen the connection to theatre. These are our public delights. Our audience is guaranteed authentic, provocative, intelligent, and challenging experience.
OUR ENGINE ROOM
Behind the scenes, JUTE is an engine room of craft and ideas development for the new, emerging and mid career artists who fuel JUTE work. JUTE stretches out to support and ignite independent practice, adding to the artistic richness and diversity of work created in this region. JUTE Cairns theatre company is an avid collaborator and connector, and this drives us into the regional arts theatre sector nationally to strategically unite, share knowledge and resources, creatively engage and tour collaborative work to new audiences.
A big brief, but JUTE is a passionate, dynamic, savvy company and we will not rest until all of our stories have been told, until there is no regional artist needing support and our audience and community need for stories is fully sated. Now that’s a big brief!
