Massive Company is a leading professional theatre company, creating and presenting theatre with emerging and professional New Zealand practitioners. For 28 years Massive Company has created physical theatre which is reknown for being rich, authentic storytelling.
A Massive Company show will “enrich, enliven and entertain” using stories combined with “raw visceral movement and deep powerful articulation of the personal to explore universals” - New Zealand Listener.
Founded and led by Artistic Director, Sam Scott MNZM, Massive Company creates original contemporary work that reflects the multi-cultural identity and voice of New Zealand and the wider South Pacific. The company is responsible for delivering some of New Zealand’s most popular home grown theatre, The Sons of Charlie Paora (2002), 100 Cousins, (2005), Up Close Out Loud (2006), Whero’s New Net (2009), Havoc in the Garden (2011) and The Brave (2012-2015), My Bed My Universe (2014), and The Wholehearted (2016-2017). We devise work or commission writers. Our recent writers have been Lennie James, Miriama McDowell and Jo Randerson. Massive has a long history of national and international touring.
We strive to engage audiences with thought-provoking work that will live with them well beyond the theatre experience. With boundless energy and playfulness the ensemble’s work evokes the human spirit in its most present and vulnerable state.
Extensive forums, workshops and feedback sessions play an integral part in all of the company’s work.
