Working in Brisbane and Melbourne, touring nationally and internationally, debase has been creating new shows since 1998.
We produce a wide range of work for a wide range of audiences; from children’s theatre to cabaret and everything in-between.
For debase, the relationship with our audience is paramount. This is reflected in the way we create and program work with and for specific audiences.
debase in 2017
Concerto for Harmony and Presto
Commissioned by Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Out of the Box.
A compelling story combining musical ingenuity and playful performances. Created for 3-8 year olds and their families, a theatrical and enchanting exploration of music as a communication tool for overcoming difference.
The Clown from Snowy River
Ten years after it’s extraordinary premier and Australian tour – The Clown from Snowy River is back on the road in partnership with the Queensland Music Festival.
“debase have mounted a tour de force…” – Douglas Leonard, RealTime
Raucous, hilarious, and insightful, The Clown from Snowy River explores the Australian identity tackling our history and myths with fearless naiveté.
If you love folk music, you will love this show. If you hate folk music, you’ll love it even more. Everyone enjoys good roots, and Warmwaters stand ready to folk you right up with their songs of romance and other issues. They’ve got a lot of issues.
The Moulin Beige
Paris is home to the Moulin Rouge but Melbourne prefers her cheeky little sister, The Moulin Beige. Blending stand up comedy, cabaret and variety this old school vaudeville night will leave you feeling delightfully entertained.
