Ninefold is a Sydney-based theatre ensemble. Founded by Shy Magsalin in 2012, Ninefold aims to investigate highly rigorous ensemble performance-making and create a sustainable culture for artists who want to explore the possibility of ongoing ensemble work.
Ninefold’s works are known to be intense, precise and imaginatively rich, Their signature style is honed by a commitment to cultivating a shared language through regular physical performance training. Strong sonic and visual elements are crucial to the group’s aesthetic. These explored alongside physical devising result in sensorily harmonic shows that envelope audiences with their operatic grandeur. “This is a truly thrilling ensemble to watch..." (Lisa Thatcher, reviewer). "The company’s image-making is as visually striking as it is disciplined.” (Jason Blake, Audrey Journal)
