Bearfoot creates, developes and stages relevant new work by emerging artists.
Bearfoot Theatre is an emerging artist managed independant NFP organisation based in Newcastle, NSW Australia. The organisation is formed by young, queer identifying theatre practitioners who are carving their own paths and creating original, experimental work from the ground up with no rules.
Bearfoot has a focus on producing predominately original works of theatre, which challenge audiences, convey relevant social messages and give a voice to young artists. We aim to assist and challenge the development of local writers by providing opportunities to workshop their scripts and to bring together a diverse and inclusive community of creatives from all facets of the industry, fostering opportunities for them to apply their skills in a safe and professional setting. Bearfoot is managed by transgender emerging artists Riley McLean and Cassie Hamilton and is an LGBTQIA+ safe space.
Since forming in 2017, Bearfoot has produced six projects and recieved seven City of Newcastle Drama Association Award nominations. Our projects to date include:
2017: Do Your Parents Know You’re Straight? by Riley McLean
