Stalker is Australia’s pre-eminent physical theatre company. Founded in 1989, in 2012 it celebrates 23 years of outstanding achievement in the production of innovative, inter-disciplinary, physical and visual theatre. Stalker has toured its hallmark outdoor and indoor productions to remote and urban locations across Australia and to Europe, Asia and Latin America.
Stalker contributes high quality contemporary physical theatre in Australia across a range of cultural, social and political contexts, regions and nations and delivers its work to extraordinarily diverse audiences. Its striking physical and visual productions communicate powerfully and imaginatively far beyond the constraints of traditional theatrical contexts. Its challenging new approach to physical performance draws on contemporary dance, new circus, martial arts, innovative approaches to dramaturgy, and inter-disciplinary and inter-cultural practices and processes.
Stalker produces a portfolio of distinct works, ranging from small, mobile street theatre productions to large site specific outdoor work, and includes both intimate and large scale indoor works, as well as a series of on going masterclasses.
Stalker produces the works of its Co-artistic directors David Clarkson and Rachael Swain as well as the projects of the intercultural company Marrugeku, creating intercultural performance in indigenous contexts in Broome Western Australia.
