at KXT, bAKEHOUSE is committed to providing an affordable and accessible venue. We’re invested in the sustainability of companies, artists and new work.

We’re at the forefront of diverse programming, theatre for social change, and gender equity.

We’re keeping the door open for new and emerging artists, and actively supporting and mentoring the next generation through our acclaimed STEP UP program

Through Write Up and Storytellers we lead the way in new Australian work: in 2019 we have supported the development of 8 new Australian scripts, and KXT2019 has brought 8 World Premieres to Sydney

With the establishment of the uncurated space sharing platform POPUPSTAIRS we’ve opened up more low cost space for more artists

so good to have this new venue doing consistently good work. It’s a glory: what can happen when artists take over a room and make it their own
— David Berthold

bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company launched KXT - Kings Cross Theatre three years ago to support Sydney’s indie theatre scene and the local arts community. We offer companies heaps of support and maximum autonomy. We’re investing in a sustainable ecology for indie theatre

every KXT work in some way pushes forward the Sydney arts scene - its an opportunity for artists to experiment and create, and its a chance for the audience to see where our local performance culture is headed”
— Cassie Tongue, Time Out
