Welcome to The Dog Theatre Website!
Great to see you!
The Dog Theatre is the premier access site for theatre in the western suburbs of Melbourne - Australia.
Yes - The Dog Theatre used to be a venue - fixed, but now we have evolved into Australia's first Site - Specific Theatre venue. We have all of our own equipment and can go anywhere we believe theatre needs a shot in the Creative Arm.
But that doesn't stop us from showing you where the best and most suitable spaces are and who the Arts Organisations you should know about are - here in the west.
When The Dog Started out in 2008, there were no professional Independent Theatre spaces in the West, now there are 3 in walking distance from each other and beyond. The Big West Festival is no puppy anymore either and its reputation is expanding at a rapid rate.
The Arts community in the West is seething with life and The Dog Theatre is here to support its sustainable growth.
Check out the links on this home page that will connect you to the Companies and Venues that make up the most vibrant Arts community in Melbourne.
If you have a show and you are looking for space, maybe in the Melbourne Fringe Festival, Comedy Festival, Midsumma ... whenever actually. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and The Dog Theatre will endeavour to get you in conversation with the right outfit here in the west.
There are many Arts organisations working here and the one thing they crave is a conversation with you...
Cheers & talk soon,
The Dog Theatre
