About us

Blue theatre Company offers self-growth and education to audiences.

Our performances are food for the heart and soul, working to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression and suicide in the community by raising awareness and empowering people to seek help.

We respect that these issues are sensitive; though statistics show high levels of our population suffering from one or more symptoms of mental illness in every day life. Our philosophy is to approach this subject with hope, humour, education, and positive enlightenment.

We are a New Australian Theatre Company that strives for innovation, creativity and integrity with a goal to help people turn fear into possibility and passion.

It is difficult to accept that life is difficult; that love is not easy and that doubt and struggle, suffering and failure, are inevitable for each and everyone of us.

We seek life’s ease. We yearn for joy and release, for flowers and the sun. And although we may find these in abundance we also find ourselves lying awake at night possessed by the terrible fear that life is impossible. Sometimes when we least expect it we wake up overwhelmed by a massive sense of loneliness, misery, chaos and death: appalled by the agony and futility of existence.

It is difficult indeed to accept that this darkness belongs naturally and importantly to our human condition and that we must live with it and bear it. It seems so unbearable.

Nature, however, requires that we have the darkness of our painful feelings and that we respect it and make a bold place for it in our lives. Without its recognition and acceptance there can be no true sense of life’s great depth, wherein lies our capacity to love, to create and to make meaning.

Nature requires that we form a relationship between our joy and our despair, that they not remain divided or hidden from one another. For these are the feelings that must cross-pollinate and inform each other in order that the soul be enlivened and strong. It is the soul, after all, that bears the burden of our experience. It is the soul through which we love and it is the soul that senses most faithfully our function within the integrity of the natural world.
