One building.
Six hundred people.
Thousands of stories.

Based in Surry Hills, Sydney, Belvoir is one of Australia’s most distinguished and beloved theatre companies. Since 1984, when a group of 600 likeminded theatre-lovers came together to buy a theatre to save it from becoming an apartment block, Belvoir has been at the forefront of Australian story telling 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 classics and international writing, and a lasting commitment to Indigenous stories. In short, Belvoir is about modern theatricality, an open society, and faith in humanity.

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

Belvoir receives government support for its activities from the Federal Government through the Major Performing Arts Board of the Australia Council and the state government through Create NSW.
