Australian National Theatre Live, –

creating more places for theatre.

ANT Live is run by a dedicated team of entertainment professionals with a great respect and understanding of the craft and conventions of both film and theatre.

 By capturing innovative theatrical performances on film that honour the “live” experience, we cater to theatre-lovers across the country and abroad.

Great theatrical performances staged by great theatre production companies will be captured forever and seen by a much greater audience.

At ANT Live, we believe that advances in digital technology, film production and distribution will compliment the live performance industry, increase box office sales, fund actors, writers, designers and directors.

Australia has a rich and diverse range of home-grown theatre and now, for the first time, everyone everywhere can experience great Australian stories, regardless of accessibility, affordability or location.

When our first production, the Ensemble Theatre’s, “Liberty Equality Fraternity”, by Geoffrey Atherden, was eventually screened in Caloundra in Queensland, the audience were enthusiastic:

“I think the concept is fantastic ..”

“That was so good. It’s all so possible ..”

“The live performance comes through even though you’re looking at a movie ..”

“The concept of filming plays is wonderful because not all of us can get to Sydney or Melbourne ..”

“I felt as though I was there ..”

“The camerawork was great the filming was great, it was excellent ..”

“Absolutely brilliant , I hope it catches on and there’ll be more ..”

“When’s the next one, bring it on”.
