about the society



We wish to contribute to the momentum of new creation by encouraging new work and nurturing original voices. Our mandate is to create and perform original theatrical productions, adapt existing texts, and to make use of the forms of dance, theatre, music, poetry, visual art and other art forms in multidisciplinary productions. We formed to support and present artistic work created by performing artists, with a focus on artists based in Victoria, including the work of the artistic director. Bounce Performance Works is both a presenting and a producing society.
