Welcome to Nautanki Theatre Company.

We are a Western Sydney based organisation supporting performing arts in NSW. Our objective is cultural development, community engagement, education and training through live performing theatre.

Our story began in 2012 as an independent theatre company, and thanks to our partnership with Riverside Theatre, we’ve been an integral part of the cross cultural storytelling journey that has been supported by our faithful patrons and theatre-lovers.

In seven years, NTC has presented six successful live theatre performance, each a full fledged production that has taken time, effort, talent and dedication. Every one of these productions was received with heart-warming enthusiasm by the South Asian diaspora.

We also inaugurated the South Asian Theatre Festival in 2016 and our project involved more than 200 actors, performers, crew and support staff. Our events were attended by more than 5000 people.

Through our programs, we reach out to more than 100,000 people based largely in Western Sydney each year, bringing the best of South Asian theatre to our varied audience.

We are working on an exciting program for 2020, and despite a slowdown due to the unprecedented advent of COVID-19, we are working hard behind the scenes to bring you an exciting and innovative festival, and a range of initiatives for the rest of the year.

At NTC, we are committed to bringing your stories to life, representing your part in contemporary Australia, engaging with the rich and varied heritage that we all share and presenting these to a wider, appreciative audience.
