About Rawcus
Formed in 2000, Rawcus is an award winning and critically acclaimed long-term ensemble of performers with and without disability who create distinct performance work and deliver exceptional arts experiences. Collaborating with a core creative team Rawcus devises new work that expresses the imaginative world of the Ensemble. Drawing on dance, theatre and visual art disciplines, the work is crafted with a precision that supports the performers but allows space for their inherent sense of anarchy. Rawcus’ performance aesthetic is characterised by a marriage of intense physicality and arresting visual imagery. Rawcus’ work is sculptural, unexpected, beautiful, funny and tender. Rawcus’ work has won numerous awards and has featured as part of Dance Massive, The Melbourne International Arts Festival, Next Wave Festival and Melbourne Fringe. Rawcus has worked collaboratively with diverse Australian arts companies including The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Restless Dance Company, Born in a Taxi and Chambermade Opera. Learn more at
