one step team

one step at a time like this is a group of artists based in Melbourne, Australia. We are theatre artists whose practice extends into areas of what is usually referred to as 'live art'.

Our earliest works were primarily theatre works. These included original works as well as radical re-workings of classical texts, incorporating elements of contemporary popular culture.
Our interest in the audience and their part in creating the meaning of the work has led us progressively further away from representation and toward site-responsive works which engage the activity of the participant in the realisation and comprehension of the work. These audience works have a pre-occupation with the place and role of the audience.

Employing an expanded notion of theatre, one step works tend to be journey-based, mobile and immersive, with a strong focus on audience centrality. Works blend the everyday with a range of digital media and live interventions, allowing audiences to slip seamlessly between real-world locales and fictional/virtual worlds.

Company works often respond to a given site and situation, but are designed in such a way that allows the specifics to become a template upon which to re-create the work in another city, venue or context.

Above all, our work is informed by an emphasis on relationships - between people, and qualities of space and time. The connective and often intimate nature of the work reflects the company's interest in engaging audience members in the activity, and by extension the creation, of a work of meaning.

The desire is to create invitations, resonances and pathways toward a more engaged and particularized experience of both live theatre and living in the world.

The company has been making work together since 2001.
