La Boite is an Australian national treasure and one of Queensland’s most revered producing houses. As Australia’s oldest continuously running theatre company, La Boite has been home to the adventurous and the alternative for 95 years in 2020.
La Boite understands that the stories, ideas and voices of our city and country are many and varied and as such seeks to represent and engage in this beautiful and rich diversity: the diversity of form, ideas, ethnicity, gender and identity.
La Boite is committed to collaboration, which starts and ends with our artists. Our Artist Development Programs span from commissions and workshops through to dedicated developments of new works, as well as participation in our annual HWY Festival. Our Youth & Participation programs cultivate the next generation of performers in the Queensland Arts Industry.
We actively seek out collaborations with exciting partners to create new work and expand the possibilities of form. In the past, La Boite has presented work with Brisbane Festival, Circa, Sydney Theatre Company, Belvoir, Griffin Theatre Company, Opera Queensland, Dead Puppet Society, The Farm, Playlab and QUT Creative Industries.
In 2020, under Artistic Director Todd MacDonald, La Boite continues to develop and present vital new Australian work.
