ReAction Theatre was formed in 2011 by Artistic Director Louise Howlett, predominately to present new and contemporary Australian text based theatre pieces. ReAction Theatre brings together a team of artists and experts, on a project by project basis, to collaborate on the development of new theatrical and text based works.
Each ensemble of artists has embraced the opportunity to work with diverse communities on a variety of new works in unique spaces such as the St Kilda Palais foyer and a warehouse in inner city Brunswick.
The overall aim of ReAction Theatre is to create the highest quality work in an environment that strives to support and nurture writers, performers and production crew alike, so that they are able to tell stories that fascinate and captivate a wide range of audiences, including children.
We are most interested in theatre that pushes boundaries in both form and content, thereby inspiring Australian audiences to challenge preconceptions and confront complex issues.
