Previous projects include the Australian premieres of Dave Malloy’s Ghost Quartet (two seasons, two Green Room Award nominations), Harrison David Rivers’ And She Would Stand Like This, Stew and Heidi Rodewald’s Passing Strange, the Victorian premiere of Sam Martin’s Sam I Am, and our annual Winter Lab for new work and bold ideas. Brooklyn Runaways, Antipodes’ cabaret and live event arm, presents gigs throughout the year including the annual Midsumma Festival event Bowie Ball.
