The space between us is huge. The space between us is colour. The space between us is music. The space between us is held in a mouthful of air.

THEATRE OF SPEED is an experimental centre for people with intellectual disabilities in Geelong, an intensive work and training environment where no other exists. It is a point of intersection between established and emerging artists and a crucible for new ideas and inter-disciplinary practice. It is a place of great freedom, where we cause trouble and disruption, where we seek to rupture what is thought possible. THEATRE OF SPEED works on Wednesdays. Works created throughout the year can be big or small, but they are always exploratory.
REDHEALER is supported by the Anthony Costa Foundation, Give Where You Live, Percy Baxter Charitable Trust, and Gandel Foundation.
Back to Back Theatre is supported by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its principal arts investment and advisory body, Creative Victoria, and the City of Greater Geelong.
