AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Due to a combination of circumstances, the dominant theatre culture of Sydney takes place in what architects call „adaptive re-use‟ buildings. Most of the theatres of Sydney are located in disused industrial buildings, large and small: a livery stable, a factory, a boat shed, a finger wharf, a bond store, a railway repair shop. These are not the venues for one-off, site-specific productions but are, on the contrary, the location of Sydney‟s culturally consecrated mainstream theatre practice.' Source: Guy McAuley.


  • Includes discussion of The Wharf and SB Stables Theatre.
