About

St Martins is one of Australia’s leading companies working with children.

We produce bold and disruptive theatre made with children and teenagers for adult audiences.

We run a unique inclusive performance workshop program that supports children aged 5–18 to develop their own creative world-view.

Our performances and workshops ensure that children are equal owners of the creative process and are recognised as artists in their own right.

Over the past four years, St Martins has implemented an ambitious artistic production strategy featuring nine new works, which have achieved public and critical acclaim.

These works have been presented in collaboration with Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne Festival, Melbourne Fringe, The Substation, Dark MoFo, Darwin Festival, Dance Massive, Junction Arts Festival, BIFEM, TheatreWorks, and Castlemaine State Festival. St Martins was the winner of the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Best Live Art Award, has previously been nominated for seven Green Room Awards and was the recipient of the 2018 Green Room Award for Design in Contemporary and Experimental Performance.

“It’s a whole-of-company approach—horizontal rather than hierarchical. We’re collegiate and collaborative. We all put our heads together. We include everyone in what’s going on—the children, the creatives, the workshop artists – we want to consider their responses and contributions.”

Nadja Kostich, Artistic Director
