Slanted Theatre is an Asian Australian theatre company. Established in October 2020.
Slanted Theatre have taken the Sydney theatre scene by storm since its first production in January 2021. Within the span of 9 months, Slanted Theatre has presented our debut production, a sold-out performance of American playwright, Lauren Yee’s 'Ching Chong Chinaman', and multiple premieres of short plays for Short + Sweet including 'What You Don't Know' and 'The Little Things'. We are also gearing up our production of Singaporean playwright, Ovidia Yu’s 'Three Fat Virgins Unassembled' in collaboration with KXT bAKEHOUSE, featuring an all Asian, female-identifying cast and crew but postponed due to the pandemic.
We haven't even celebrated our first anniversary yet, but we have already worked with over 40 Asian theatre-makers, including various directors, designers, actors, and more. Our aims are to work with Asian casts and crew, create relevant and interesting work, eliminate tokenistic casting, improve representation and to create conversation.
Creating indie theatre in Sydney is no easy task. We're super grateful to organisations such as KXT bAKEHOUSE and Short + Sweet who have provided a helping hand in the past, but now that our community is growing, we foresee many productions which means an increase in costs.
Here are just some of the typical costs from an indie single production:
$4000 Venue Hire
Then add on Insurance, Marketing, Licenses, Rehearsal Hire ($25/hour)
Our coming productions will have similar costs...
And that's not even including artist fees! All the artists, designers, and creators involved in Slanted Theatre are part of a profit share agreement which means we split the profit between ourselves post-show. This is the typical way to produce theatre in Sydney.
What will your donations cover?
Your donations will help make possible ...
- theatre that celebrates diversity within the Asian community
- video content: trailers, interviews, Q&As
- day-to-day costs like our website, insurance so that we can focus on generating profits for...cast and crew profit share!
And all it takes is a monthly subscription for as little as $2/month!
Thank you so much for your consideration, and we hope to see you in the foyer soon!
