Kaupapa

Blackboard Theatre Collective is a Christchurch based theatre company whose mission is to expand the theatrical landscape and opportunities in New Zealand.

We aim to inspire, enrich and embolden young and aspiring creatives in New Zealand through the medium of modern and fresh theatre and performance.


It is our goal to provide a stable launching pad for new works and proven theatre that has been lacking in the kiwi audience experience, in a professional and powerful manner that will push and challenge audiences to 'rethink' the way they view and process theatre.
The keystone of all artists is to learn.


Learning invites growth, challenges us to explore, wills us to embrace the uniquity in others and ourselves.


We wish to provide a space where creatives can come to learn.


Through study, observation, adventure and sharing, artists will prosper and create.
