Counterpoint

Counterpoint was formed in 2012, by a group of University of Otago graduates who were frustrated at the lack of opportunities for young theatre makers to produce work and the lack of stories for young people on the Dunedin stage. After seeing many of their colleagues move away to the brighter lights of Wellington and Auckland and struggle due to increased competition, Counterpoint decided to grow a theatre industry in Dunedin to foster young actors, directors, writers and designers.

  • Foster a youth oriented theatre industry in Dunedin that produces work by young people for young people.

  • Provide opportunities for young theatre practitioners to hone their craft in a supportive environment

  • Remove barriers to young people producing their work, by offering financial, administrative and production assistance.

  • Promote the up skilling of young artists by running workshops led by industry professionals.
