one step at a time like this is a group of artists who create participatory, locative and site responsive works. Based in Melbourne, Australia.

one step at a time like this create place-responsive and conversation-based works, focusing on the activity of the audience as an essential element in the work. Exploring ways to allow audience members to find a point of relaxed engagement, involvement and activity in the imaginal and real worlds unfolding before them.


Our latest show Carnival of Futures has just finished its premiere season at Arts House, North Melbourne. A series of one-on-one performances created with, and featuring, 2 futurists – a chance to reflect, act and 'dream forward'.

Earlier this year we spent some time in Melbourne working on a number of new projects, after a fruitful 2017.

In February we attended APAM (Australian Performing Arts Market) in Brisbane, and spoke about our latest show in development, Noir Trail. Noir Trail is a radio-based outdoor experience, into the night, the dark, your sleep and death.

Our show for children upsidedowninsideout had a hugely enjoyable London outing at Sadlers Wells Theatre as one of 20 landmark commissions to mark the 20th anniversary of its iconic London theatre. The work played as part of the Children's Program over Easter.

Later in the year we're working with Triage Live Art Collective to present The Infirmary at Arts House. Katerina, the Artistic Director of Triage, and Clair from one step have collaborated to create an immersive sensory experience that peers over the threshold between life and death.

For the rest of 2018 we'll be working on a number of projects, including resuming work at Substation in Newport to finalise our Noir work.

Thank you for your interest in our work, and hopefully we will be able to bring / create one of our works wherever you may be.
