What We Do

What We Do

We work with artists and companies to make thought-provoking and inspirational live performance.

We Make Shows

From helping develop the first seeds of an idea right through to national and international touring, we provide the support and advice to make big things happen.

Performing Lines acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we work – the Gadigal in Sydney, the Whadjuk in Perth, and the Muwinina in Hobart – and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

We extend those respects to all First Nations peoples on whose lands we travel and perform.
