Australian Dance Theatre has been creating exceptional contemporary dance and performing it across the country and around the world since 1965.

ADT hero

Australian Dance Theatre exists to create dynamic dance theatre experiences that reflect the true diversity of our nation's artistic voice.

We prioritise ideas and ideals that resonate with the next generation of storytellers and audiences. Our works move between artforms and generations and push beyond boundaries offered by traditional performance spaces. We harness the visceral capacity of bodies in space, making way for transformative and inspirational opportunities for our artists, audiences, and broader communities. 

Australian Dance Theatre is one of Australia’s pre-eminent contemporary dance companies and the longest running in the country. For nearly 60 years Australian Dance Theatre has pioneered new work that has continually redefined dance in this region. 

We respect our legacy whilst propelling the company into the now, utilising numerous forms of storytelling to create meaningful theatrical experiences. We recognise the raw power of movement, as the oldest form of storytelling, and emphasise its ability to be inclusive, instinctual, and accessible to all.  

Based in Adelaide, South Australia, Australian Dance Theatre is at the forefront of Australian contemporary dance, committed to creating dance works of the highest standard that are intellectually and artistically compelling.
