is a theatre company that creates new performance interrogating serious ideas in a ridiculous manner and ridiculous ideas in a serious manner. We are Jude Henshall, Louisa Mignone, Nadia Rossi, Ellen Steele and Tessa Leong and we have been collaborating since meeting as students at Flinders Drama Centre. Launching as a company in 2006, we have created and presented four full-scale works, all of which have been devised entirely by the ensemble along with talented collaborators.
We make performance to bring people together and challenge notions of what is certain. We forge connections with these people- in public- in private- in secret- and ask questions that mobilise new audiences. We are in cahoots with those who embrace adventure, ideas big and small. We aim to make an audience smile, converse and act upon these perceptions for days, hours and years to come. We create work that resonates with people and their own ideas. The world around us is ever inspiring: full of tiny karaoke stages; abandoned cinemas; and studies of the brain that excite us no end. isthisyours? makes work for everyday people who are inspired and excited by the tiny brilliances that can occur in live engaging performance.
