Apocalypse - ἀποκάλυψις - 'to reveal the hidden'
APOCALYPSE is a leading professional independent platform for aesthetically-arresting and provocative theatre and live art.
We champion high production values, experimentation and ambitious design and work closely with design collaborators to create layered visual and sonic universes.
We are defined by our artists and back fearless and ambitious ideas and creators. APOCALYPSE is a home for provocateurs, auteurs, misfits, queers, the forgotten, the marginalised, and the storytellers working across art forms.
APOCALYPSE productions have been nominated for and received a number of Sydney Theatre Awards across design, acting and direction categories.
