Shaun Parker & Company’s vision is to be Australia’s premiere dance theatre company: creating, producing and touring innovative dance works of outstanding quality, and delivering an extensive range of authentic dance programs for young people. Over the last 11 years, the company has toured to 21 countries as well as to every corner of Australia, with its works being seen by over 500,000 people. 

“We should see more of Shaun Parker.” Martin Portus, Daily Review, 21 February 2019

Even before the pandemic hit, creating and performing art in Australia was not for the faint hearted and it has only become more difficult in the last 24 months.  Producing art is a challenging endeavour that requires time, talent, concentration, hard work and, ultimately, funding. 


Shaun Parker & Company is raising funds with the aim of offering the five core dancers (Olivia Hadley, Libby Montilla, Romain Hassanin, Samuel Beazley and Joel Fenton) fulltime, one-year contracts – performing, touring and developing new work with the company from next year and into 2023. An incredible opportunity in a recovering industry.

Shaun and his performers create work because they are compelled to do so. And in doing so, they add an essential and unique element to the rich canvas of Australia’s cultural output. And in spite of the challenges, they artistically raise and then clear the bar year after year.

The achievements of the company are in no small part down to the hugely generous government and philanthropic partners whose ongoing support is essential to the company’s survival and its creative output.

Thanks to the support of Plus 1 Creative Partnerships and the immense generosity of our Major Philanthropic Partner Penny Hunstead, every donation received between now and May 31 2022 will be quadrupled through match-funding. Meaning a $100 donation will become $400 for the company and dancers.
