Free Theatre Ensemble
The company works as an ensemble with a core group having worked together for over a decade. The ensemble trains regularly, incorporating different styles, forms and media into its experimentation as a means of exploring the ideas that are central to the project at hand. The ensemble brings a range of skills and talents to the table, which feed and direct the work the company produces. While different productions involve different collaborators and members of different organisations (recently the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Pacific Underground, Te Ahikōmau a Hamoterangi, Te Pao a Tahu and the Cantabrian Society of Sonic Artists), below are current and recent members of the company that have been involved in a number of productions. Click on images below to learn more about the members.
We feature here a few of the exceptional artists that have been involved as guest collaborators and in developing Free Theatre's Te Puna Toi Artist-in-Residence programme.
