The response to HOLDING ACHILLES, our collaboration with Dead Puppet Society, has been overwhelming. Our Sydney Festival season was a sold out smash hit and we're so excited about the future of the work. Until then you can catch the show if you missed it, or relive your favourite moments thanks to Sydney Festival: AT HOME where the performance recorded at Brisbane Festival (captured by Pixelframe at the Playhouse, QPAC in September 2022) is available for FREE viewing until 17 February 2023.

OH, are we excited about this? YES. Open Industry Training returns to the Red Box this month, and we've added a specialised aerial training session to the mix as well.


Our Industry classes are open, but they are also rigorous floor classes and designed to cater to professional artists with training in physical theatre, dance and/or circus, and a high fitness level. That said, it's been an up and down couple of years and we'll be dipping our toes into regular training ourselves. If in doubt, JOIN US or contact us directly with any questions. No bookings are required:


Friday 10 February, 9:30 - 10:30

Friday 17 February, 9:30 - 10:30

Friday 24 February, 9:30 - 10:30

RED BOX - 91 Canal Road LILYFIELD NSW 2040


Please wear what is comfortable & easy to move around in. Bring a spare change of clothes. Please keep you hair tied back & no jewellery, or glasses, if possible. This includes rings, bracelets, earrings, facial piercings, necklaces. Please bring water. There are shower and change room facilities available.


For those wanting to leap into aerial work, we have a dedicated aerial class continuing on from the open class this Friday 10 February from 10:30 to 11:30. A modest charge applies for this session.

We plan to conduct some classes for all ages and ability levels later in the year. Keep a look out!
