Black Hole Theatre is committed to the development of puppetry as a powerful form of contemporary performance practice. We provide a platform for creative exchange between puppeteers and artists working across contemporary performing arts practice. Founded in 1993 in Melbourne, Australia by artists and puppeteers Cliff Dolliver, Paul Newcombe, and Rod Primrose, the company is committed to cutting edge visual, object and puppet theatre.

We create our own original works, produce events such as the popular Puppet Slams, facilitate the work of independent artists, collaborate with other companies in creating material, and also run a variety of workshops for adults and young people.

Black Hole is a small independent company that contributes to and supports the evolution of this wonderful art form. It needs your help to continue! Every donation over $2 is tax deductible. Apart from that sweetener, we cannot offer you glittering prizes, but we appreciate every donation – however small – and thank you from the bottom of our heart!

Don’t have money but still want to contribute?

Our projects take time and space. Do you have a shed that you’d like to have inhabited by artists for a short time? A space that could be used for rehearsal? Photography skills? Some elbow grease going to waste?

Puppetry requires a lot of making – tools, materials, imagination: if you have any of these to spare, let us know!

We will acknowledge you in every way we can. Black Hole Theatre cherishes its friends.
