The ambition of the company is to defy categorisation into form or content. Archipelago will tour works from Tasmania to Australian metropolitan centres, and regional locations, giving local artists the chance to expand their audience and experience, and the opportunity to collaborate with interstate artists on the development of new works. These productions will be developed locally, and will be presented in the regional setting of Tasmania.
All projects will have dedicated mentorship roles in the areas of stage management, performance and design. This provides not only professional pathway experience, but also acts as insurance for the productions in COVID stressed times, mitigating against the risks of cancellation and delay caused by the predicted continuation of illness, quarantining, and lock downs.
