Auditions for the 2022 Season

Based in the Sunshine Coast, D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective is an award-winning professional physical theatre company that engages their member artists in training, creative development, live performances and community activities every year. There are opportunities for paid work in different projects throughout the year.

One of the fundaments our group is the belief in physical and political theatre training as a developing practice and evolving exercise in exploration. Whether during creative development or when not working on a particular production, we always train together. Training allows us to stay connected, strengthen our artistic community, develop a collective language and improve a set of shared tools and skills to be used during devising and rehearsal periods. D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective runs a year-long training program. All ensemble performers undergo free training during the workshops, valued at $1400.

We are looking for long-term enthusiastic collaborators who are willing to share some of their energy, time and experience towards the development of an engaging community of creative minds to foster connections, stimulate investigation and encourage cooperation. Ensemble artists also work together in the running of our company and are committed to promote D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective as a theatre company of excellence in the Sunshine Coast and in Queensland.

For 2022, D.I.V.E Theatre Collective is planning a new project entitled Caprichos: a multimodal and immersive theatrical performance that will explore the vanities, banalities and follies of modern society. Inspired by Los Caprichos, a series of 80 satirical etchings created by Spanish artist Francisco de Goya in 1797, our aim is to bring the artist’s work to life and re-interpret its meaning through contemporary theatrical eyes.


Auditions for D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective’s Ensemble will be held on the 10 November 2021,
between 6:30 and 8:30 pm.
