Cross Encounters is the first independent non-profit performing arts organisation in Melbourne with a particular focus on the exchange and communication between Chinese and Australian theatre, particularly physical theatre. The activities are created by a small,passionate group under the guidance of a board of directors, made up of professionals from inside and outside the performing arts. The majority of the organisation have degrees in Theatre Studies from the University of Melbourne and work at the cutting edge of innovative cross-cultural performance-making.

The company is Melbourne’s first and currently only independent NFP and DGR certified Chinese-Australian performing arts organisation.
