North of Eight is an ensemble led company dedicated to the honest and disciplined craft of storytelling. Founded in 2016 by practicing artists who met through the Howard Fine Acting Studio Australia, we have a collective passion to share meaningful stories that need to be told. Driven to work in a way that will best breathe life into a written foundation, we are committed to exploration and specificity, while endeavouring to always remember the key ingredients – humanity and heart.

TAKING a stance
As a relatively new independent company, we have been inspired and wish to acknowledge the public stand being taken by our fellow independents over the past week.
As we take stock of our first year of creating theatre, we are grateful to find ourselves surrounded by companies and individuals who are not afraid to demand the best of themselves and their colleagues, and to call out anything less. We acknowledge the power we have to hold ourselves and our collaborators present and in the future to the highest standard of safe and respectful working practices, and to choose carefully where we align our practice.
North of Eight is committed to standing against harassment, bullying, sexual harassment and all forms of prejudice in the arts.
North of Eight is always looking for new creatives to collaborate with, be they writers, directors, designers, dramaturgs, producers, stage managers, or actors. Don't be afraid to let us know you exist!
