2. KXT supports new AUSTRALIAN writing: 8 Australian plays ~ 4 script developments
Writers are magicians: they conjure worlds out of words filling blank pages with people and places where once there was nothing. When we invest in Australian writing we play a part in creating the voice the next generation will hear, respond to and build on.
3. KXT aims for (and exceeds) gender parity: 8 female directors ~ 7 male directors ~ 14 female writers ~ 5 male writers
In 2017, DTC (59% women), Belvoir (50%) and Griffin (50%) achieved gender parity in their programming of writers and directors. Sydney Theatre Company (34%) and Ensemble Theatre (16%) have male-dominant seasons, again. It should be noted that Griffin did not achieve gender parity in its independent season programming (40%). - WiTS
4. KXT invests in diversity: 3 major diverse projects
bAKEHOUSE is committed to providing a platform for the often unheard voices of Sydney.
The voice of Sydney in 2017 is indigenous. It is Australian, American, English Irish, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese. It comes from Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, New Zealand, India, the Philippines. And many more. It is no longer white and English - it is much, much more.
