Giant Dwarf Theatre

Type of space: Theatre, Cinema, Multi-use Space, Music Performance Venue, Performance venue, Photography and Film Location, Rehearsal Space

    Giant Dwarf is a hidden theatre just down the road from central station in Redfern, Sydney. Taken over and restored by the Chaser team in 2015, the venue has become an incubation ground for a range of upcoming comedy acts, as well as providing a much needed middle-sized performance space for Sydney's creative performance community.

    The theatre includes two small bars, a video wall for on-stage presentations, and a piano kindly lent to the space by Tim Minchin.

    The venue has been hired in the past for a range of uses, including TV/music video shoots, storytelling nights, theatre rehersals, movie screenings, live podcasts, and touring standup acts. Whatever you're planning we'd love to chat to see if we can make the space work for your creative pursuit.
