Based in an old factory on Gadigal land, Sydney, Belvoir is one of Australia’s most celebrated and beloved theatre companies. Since 1984, when a group of 600 theatre-lovers came together to buy a theatre and save it from becoming an apartment block, Belvoir has been at the forefront of Australian storytelling for the stage. Each year the company presents an annual season of shows for this now-iconic corner stage. New work and new stories sit at the centre of Belvoir’s programming, alongside a mix of reinvented classics and international writing, and a foundational commitment to Indigenous stories. In short, Belvoir is about theatrical invention, an open society, and faith in humanity.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Eamon Flack and Executive Director Aaron Beach, Belvoir engages Australia’s most prominent and promising theatre-makers. Belvoir has nurtured the talents of artists including Cate Blanchett, Simon Stone, Leah Purcell, Benedict Andrews, Tommy Murphy, Kate Mulvany, Geoffrey Rush, Anne-Louise Sarks, Wesley Enoch, S. Shakthidharan, and former Artistic Director Neil Armfield. Landmark productions include Counting and CrackingThe Wild DuckFANGIRLS!, CloudstreetBarbara and the Camp DogsThe Drover’s WifeThe Glass MenagerieAngels in AmericaKeating!The Sapphires, and many, many more. Belvoir regularly tours nationally and internationally.

Belvoir receives government support for its activities from the Federal Government through the Australia Council and the state government through Create NSW.
