Nautanki Theatre Company is a Western Sydney based organisation works for cultural development, community engagement, education and training through live performing theatre. We began our journey from the grassroots community level to evolve as an Independent Theatre Company practicing cross-cultural story telling in partnership with Riverside Theatre since 2012. In last 7 years, Nautanki Company has successfully presented six live theatre performances and kick-started annual South Asian Theatre Festival in 2016. Nautanki’s project involved more than 200 actors, performers, crew and support staff. Our events were attended by more than 5000 audience. We reach out to more than 100,000 people based in Western Sydney every year through our various programs.
Our aim is to produce creative opportunity with a true representation of contemporary Australia and provide equal access to everyone.
Our objective is to work with CaLD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) community, refugee or migrant people facilitating social inclusion, creating a voice to vanguard their cultural identity. Working specifically with South-Asian migrant community, we are in the process of creating a new audience base representing the demography from Parramatta, Blacktown, Hills District and parts of Inner City.
