Kabosh work with an ever-changing ensemble of actors, playwrights, designers, technicians, film makers and musicians.  We are passionate about our creative process and the production of quality theatre. The company creates work from artistic conception through to production whilst also being able to respond to requests from others to work together, whether it be animating a heritage site or addressing sensitive social issues or partnering internationally to produce work that furthers reconciliation.
