FREE TIX - NicheYou've found your place, your tribe, your Niche...

Niche is a pop star. She writes songs about what it's like to be her, and it has made her famous.

Jodee doesn't know about pop music. She knows about dangerous viruses. That's why she's been hired by Niche's management.

Belonging is everything. Replication is more.

Powered by a pumping original soundtrack from Steve Toulmin and Marcel Dorney (Prehistoric), directed by Nic Holas and created by Eryn Jean Norvill and Emily Tomlins (a tiny chorus), Niche is a surreal, irreverent and deeply affecting story about what we really want from celebrity in the digital age.

Elbow Room are a Melbourne-based theatre company committed to the rigorous development of the craft of writing and performance-making in order to test and strengthen the relationship between art and society, and the capacity of that relationship to create change.

Niche is proudly presented and supported by the City of Darebin through their Darebin Arts Speakeasy season. This project has also been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, Creative Victoria and the Sidney Myer Foundation.

“Elbow Room are still the country’s best advocates for a theatre of ideas and imagination.” ★★★★ - Daily Review

"It's political theatre at its best." - Alison Croggon, ABC

No End of Blame | Sport for Jove

Putting the ink into think, Howard Barker’s No End of Blame is as powerful and poignant, perhaps even more so, today, as it was when written, nearly forty years ago.
