Cross Encounters is a new NFP performing arts company that is dedicated to creating innovative intercultural theatrical productions. The activities are implemented by a small group with the majority having Melbourne University and theatre background. Currently the group has a particular focus on art that addresses Asian-Australian contemporary physical theatre. A Stone’s Throw is the company’s first production.
Alongside the shows the company also provides a platform for artists from different cultural backgrounds to engage in collaborative projects and workshops. It also provides cross-cultural theatrical presentation and communication by introducing a variety of artists and organising relevant activities, facilitating a fresh dialogue between industry insiders and wider communities.
