Kantanka is a creative collective led by artist Carlos Gomes that incorporates the talents of visiting artists, who collaborate on a project-by-project basis. Since Kantanka’s inception in 1995, the company has been making contemporary art, reflecting on our culturally diverse society. The ensemble company has created a number of significant productions - using ancient tales, diverse cultural influences, non-traditional performance sites, and new technologies, while employing a dynamic visual design and a strong physical aesthetic.

At Kantanka, we

  • Explore the creative possibilities of cross-cultural performance works
  • Empower culturally diverse artists
  • Develop our practice of visual poetics through collaborations with interdisciplinary artists
  • Establish creative relationships with the diverse social groupings that form our society, echoing the real world within the fictional world of performance
  • Engage with diverse audiences
  • Re-define new forms of collaborations
Kantanka acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the traditional owners of the land and waters upon which this Creative Collective stands.
